Evansville Area Officials Encourage Residents to Postpone Halloween Activities Due to Severe Weather Threat

Trick or Treating

With a 100% chance of rain, and a threat of severe weather in the forecast for Halloween, city and county officials around the Tri-State are strongly suggesting everyone play it safe and put off their trick-or-treating, and other Halloween related activities until Friday.

As of this writing, the National Weather Service in Paducah, Kentucky is forecasting a slight risk of severe weather for the entire Tri-State area which includes damaging winds as the primary threat, however hail and isolated tornadoes can also take place as a cold front moves through the area.

As a result, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and Vanderburgh County Council President, Marsha Abell have both issued statements encouraging residents to air on the side of caution and hold off trick or treating until Friday.

Newburgh and Henderson officials have decided to leave the decision on whether or not to brave the elements up to parents, while Boonville has postponed its “Boo at Boonville” activities on the town square until 5-6:30 p.m. Friday. However, officials there have made no statement in regards to trick-or-treating on Thursday.

Officials in Chandler have also asked residents to not trick-or-treat on Thursday, asking them instead to wait until Friday between 3:00-6:30PM.

Finally in Mt. Vernon, officials have moved the annual Halloween event at the fire station to Friday from 3-6 p.m., and recommend that children in town also trick-or-treat that evening.
