ALEXANDRIA, Ky. -- Some communities have moved trick-or-treating to Tuesday night ahead of record-breaking rain forecasted for Halloween. 

In Kentucky, Alexandria, Butler and Gallatin and Owen Counties have moved Halloween up a day. In Ohio, Ripley, Mount Orab, Georgetown and Clinton County will also do trick-or-treat a day early. 

Some parents, like Joanie Sebastian of Williamstown, think city and county officials should have stuck with tradition and had trick-or-treating on Halloween. But other parents welcome the change.

Daniele Short, of Wilder, said she plans to take her kids trick-or-treating in Alexandria tonight in an effort to beat the bad weather. 

"We were just talking this morning, we might have to cancel because we have a little bit of colds going on and it's going to be raining and cold all day tomorrow … but then I felt bad so then I was thinking maybe we'll run up to Alexandria and go trick-or-treating since they're doing theirs tonight,” Short said.

Samantha Padgett, of Newport, said she plans to bundle up the kids and take them door-to-door in their hometown.

“We have it all, umbrellas, rain boots, rain coats, and hopefully it will be enough,” Padgett said.
