Lorain County moving trick-or-treat for high school football

LORAIN COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - What could be scarier than a night filled with people dressed like characters straight from a horror movie?

Some say moving trick-or-treating to the day before Halloween makes them want to scream louder.

"I think they should keep it the way it is, maybe move football to a different night," said Todd Foster of Avon Lake.

"I'd rather it be on Friday, because I don't like to go anywhere on Saturday, or do anything," said Alex Harrold of Elyria.

You see, the glare of Friday night lights have made the Lorain County Community Alliance decide it was better to have trick-or-treaters hit the streets the night before Halloween, so as not to interfere with high school football.

Little ghosts and goblins are now scheduled to come knocking on your door from 6:00-7:30 p.m. on October the 30 in Lorain County.

"I thought it might be more fun to do it on Friday because I could have had a sleepover with my friends," said Maddie Stiles of Avon Lake.

"I think it's a great idea to move it," said Rhonda Prusak of Avon. "One, so that people can attend the football game, and then two, I worry about having people out driving and a lot of traffic while my kids are out trying to trick-or-treat."

But, there's one more trick to this treat.  The first Cavs game is now the same night as trick-or-treating in Lorain County. 

Avon Lake City Councilman, David Kos, said that the decision to move trick-or-treating to another night was solely based on safety.
