Halloween on the Erath County Courthouse square will come a day late for trick or treaters. 

With rain in Wednesday’s forecast, the Stephenville Chamber of Commerce has decided to postpone Safe Trick ‘R Treat until Thursday. The event will take place from 5-7 p.m.

“It is not an easy decision to postpone an event this large,” July Danley, president of the Chamber, said Monday. “Since the forecast is calling for a 90% chance of rain on Wednesday the decision was made to move the event to Thursday and we look forward to enjoying a beautiful, crisp sunshiny day.”

More than 70 local businesses, churches and non-profit organizations have signed up to help pass out treats during the downtown event, Danley said.   

An estimated 3,000 kids are expected to attend.
