JONESBORO, Ark. – Halloween is going to happen one day early in Jonesboro.
Because of the forecast for potentially dangerous weather on Wednesday, Jonesboro and the rest of Craighead County will observe trick-or-treat activities on Tuesday, Oct. 30, a day ahead of the traditional Halloween.
Jonesboro’s Harold Perrin and mayors of the other towns and cities of Craighead County, as well as the county itself, agreed Monday that the National Weather Service forecast for Wednesday afternoon and evening could be treacherous for trick-or-treaters.
“I think this is the best interest of our children and community at large,” Mayor Harold Perrin said. “I realize this will be an inconvenience for some, but in the big picture, it’s the safer and smarter choice.”

I think trick or treating should just be done on the last Saturday of the month.
Satan’s favorite holiday.. How nice that the mayor(god) ,has taken it upon himself to be gracious enough to alter the days for satan’s children! Good ole Paganboro, home of degenerate humanimals and counterfeit Christian’s! Maybe the mayor will change what day Xmas is supposed to be on should the weather not be to the communities liking.
