Trick-or-treaters prepare for wet, chilly Halloween night

Some North Texans chose to get a head start on trick-or-treating this Halloween due to forecasted rain and cold weather.

It was a cool night on Monday, but Tuesday night is expected to be cold and wet. Some events have already been canceled as parents gravitate toward indoor trick-or-treating.

Several parents took their kids out to the annual Boo Bash at the University of North Texas.

These parents are taking their kids trick or treating a day early this year, as Dallas Fort Worth is expecting rain and cold temperatures on Halloween night.

"After watching your meteorologists with the rain we're getting tomorrow, it's nice to get the trick-or-treating in now,” said parent Christopher Horiates. “It's a great opportunity."

Plano has already canceled Kids Night Out for Tuesday due to the high possibility of rain. Now, indoor events are popping up across the metroplex.

Bass Pro in both Grapevine and Garland will host indoor trick-or-treating beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday with photos and crafts. Some malls are getting in on the indoor fun, too.

Firewheel Town Center in Garland will host trick-or-treaters from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday and will let them get candy from retailers and even take a free train ride. North East Mall in Hurst will open its doors to them from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. also offering train rides.

"I'm not going to take him outside if it's rainy and cold out,” Horiates said. “It's fun to just do this today."

Each of the indoor events on Tuesday will begin at 5 p.m.

Police officers are also reminding parents and children to be safe on Halloween night, which becomes more important in inclement weather.
