NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Terri Reynolds and her two daughters spent Wednesday night fighting the crowds looking for the perfect Halloween costume.

Reynolds just hopes it doesn't end up soaking wet.

"If the weather is really bad then it's like a no whatsoever," said Reynolds.  "If it's light and drizzling I'll just drive around in my car."

The possibility of storms has many communities putting Halloween on hold.

Mt. Juliet, Lebanon and Columbia are just a few that are holding trick or treat events Friday because of the weather.

Goodlettsville is taking another approach.

The city is moving its popular Pumpkin Festival inside Rivergate Mall Thursday night.

Spokesperson Mary Laine Hucks says safety was the biggest reason for the change.

"We've been watching the forecasts for quite a while now and we didn't want to make the decision too soon but there was no way we were not gonna have the event," said Hucks.

The Mall at Green Hills, Cool Springs Mall, Opry Mills, Governor's Square Mall and Stones River Mall are all hosting some type of trick or treat event.
