A couple Lexington neighborhoods are considering postponing trick-or-treat day. They are concerned the storms coming Thursday will not be safe for the children.

Lexington is still schedule to trick-or-treat on Thursday. But many other cities have postponed this holiday tradition until Friday.

Melanie Hosey has taken her four children trick-or-treating for years. She said there are a lot of children in their neighborhood, and many of the parents were hoping trick-or-treat would be changed.

“So a bunch of the moms got together and decided that we could be flexible on our dates,” Hosey said. “They thought it would be a good idea just to change to friday so that we could have our traditional trick-or-treating.

Another neighborhood considering changing the date because of children’s safety concerns was the Pinnacle Neighborhood Home Owners Association.

They posted on the Pinnacle Neighbors’ Facebook page, “Hello neighbors. Due to the inclement weather Thursday, would everyone like to move trick-or-treat to Friday from 6-8pm?”

President Mark Stringer said they received 50 comments that supported the change.

However, Stringer said they will stick with whatever the city decides to do. He said one of the reasons is because changing the date for just their neighborhood could be too confusing for residents.

Meanwhile, Fayette Mall is preparing for hundreds of extra people to attend their trick-or-treat event Thursday night from 6-8 p.m.

More than 80 retailers will be handing out candy.

Lexington Mayor Jim Gray tweeted earlier today that the city is keeping an eye on the weather and will make the final call in the morning.
