Weather Causing Last Minute Halloween Changes
COLUMBUS (Ben Garbarek) -- The rain headed our way is forcing many trick-or-treaters to make some last minute changes.
A popular carved pumpkin display will have to pack up a night early. There are more than 150 carved pumpkins in Doug Summers' front yard off Meadow Road. He's taking them all inside the night before Halloween ahead of the storm.
"Looks like we'll have another Frankenstorm like we had last year," Summers said. "We're going to do it (Wednesday), skip (Halloween) and do it Friday. It's a lot of work for one night so we're trying to get two nights one way or another."
Dozens of people were stopping by on Wednesday to get an early look.
"I'm happy we got to tonight," he said. "It's a perfect night so hopefully Friday will work too."
In Hilliard, kids were already out getting their candy fix at "Truck or Treat" at the YMCA.
"We just started hearing it might rain tomorrow," said Tom Bowden, who brought his 4 year-old son. "We had our costumes ready to go already and (we wanted to) get some use out of them."
Kids might have to stay in on Halloween and wait to go trick-or-treating door-to-door this weekend.
"We're just going to play wait and see with the weather," he said. "If we need to, we'll see if any of the rural areas have rescheduled and maybe go on Saturday."
