Because of the threat of rain during the set trick-or-treat hours on Halloween, both Springfield and Chatham are adding some extra hours on Friday.
A statement from the city of Springfield says trick-or-treating will also be allowed from 5-8pm on November 1st. The forecast calls for a better than 50% chance of rain during the previously-announced hours of 4:30 to 8pm today.
Chatham is also permitting children to trick-or-treat either today or Friday. Friday's hours will be from 5 to 8:30pm.
Officials are still reminding drivers to be watchful for children on both days, and remind residents that if they are handing out candy either today or tomorrow, they should turn on their porch lights.
