Neither rain, nor wind will postpone trick-or-treating in Toledo

Get ready for rain while trick-or-treating

Despite howling winds and heavy rains predicted for Halloween night, the city of Toledo, and many other communities, say trick-or-treating will go on as planned.

The threat of severe weather has already forced some northwest Ohio communities to change their trick-or-treat plans. Elmore, Genoa, Wauseon, Woodville, Pandora, and Oak Harbor are among several municipalities that have decided to push their Halloween celebrations to the weekend.

Several parents have questioned the city of Toledo on their plans for Thursday night. The city responded on their Facebook page Wednesday, "Halloween in Toledo is still Thurs 6-8. Parents please use best judgement and exercise discretion in trick-or-treating with your kids."

The city of Findlay said their trick-or-treating will also go on as planned Thursday from 6:30-8 p.m. City administrators believe the heaviest rain will occur after trick-or-treating hours. They urge parents to use their own discretion as to participate; however, if the weather prediction changes, they will notify residents using their emergency notification system.

The city of Perrysburg and Perrysburg Township will not change the time and date of trick-or-treat. According to a statement on their website, "It will continue, rain or shine, on Thursday October 31 from 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m."
