Communities, neighborhoods make decisions on trick or treating
Louisville, Ky (WDRB) -- Twitter and Facebook are all a-buzz about when to trick or treat. Several communities have moved their times and dates because of the weather. Neighborhoods and communities are getting ready for the incoming weather.
While some moved trick or treating to yesterday or throughout this weekend, a neighborhood in Eastern Jefferson County says parents here have more options.
In the Wolf Creek subdivision, kids will have two days to trick or treat, Thursday and Friday night from 5 to 8.
Dr. Mark Lynn, the President of the Wolf Creek Homeowners Association, says the neighborhood of 265 homes can expect trick or treaters both nights.
Lynn says, "After talking to my wife, she said, geez why don't we do both nights. I sort of went oh ok, didn't make sense to me at first and that's a great idea, so we got a hold of the board and we'll just open it up to both nights."
But the City of Hurstbourne Administrator Jim Leidgen says trick or treating will be tonight on Halloween.
He says, "I'm disappointed as well, we are all disappointed, unfortunately these are events that just happen. As I said before, we can't control the weather, we can't control these events. there are other options."
He points to many indoor events that parents can take their kids to.
Hurstbourne has 4500 residents, and Leidgen says he's only received phone calls and messages from about a dozen people.
He stands by the decision to keep trick or treating on October 31st.
Leidgen says, "We contacted a number of homeowner's associations and neighborhoods and we got the same feel that most area cities held the same position as we adopted, not just Louisville Metro but other cities."
While some hoped the city of Louisville would have moved trick or treating, the Mayor's Office says it encourages parents and children to be cautious if there are severe storms as predicted tonight.
Lynn says, "Just go to where they have lights on. Don't bother those by going two, three, four, five times."
