Edmonson County Judge Executive Wil Cannon has announced that the annual Halloween on the Square event and county trick-or-treating has been officially changed from Halloween night to Tuesday, October 30, 2018, due to the potential for thunderstorms.
While the event was originally set to be moved inside the community center in case of rain, Judge Cannon said that chances for thunderstorms are too great for Wednesday and that the safety of trick-or-treaters could be at risk.
"We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but safety is our number one priority," Cannon said. "While we thought moving it inside in case of rain would work, the potential for thunderstorms caused us to reconsider. Even if we have it inside, people still have to be out and about, park, and walk around the square to get inside the building, and that's still a safety concern."
City activities are still on for Wednesday, October 31, 2018, according to Brownsville Utility Clerk Kim Brown.
"The mayor has not changed any city activities, and said he will not change them," she said.
Once again, County activities have been moved to Tuesday, October 30, 2018 from 4pm-7pm.
