CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo -

Halloween is on hold in one Missouri town, at least officially.

The city of Perryville on Thursday sent out an advisory that trick-or-treating would be postponed until Friday night due to heavy rain.

The advisory said the weather would make outdoor activity a "wet and muddy mess." Postponing it means a "fun and carefree Friday evening for kids and parents alike," according to the statement that went out via a city news release.
