SELLERSBURG, IN (WAVE) – Trick-or-treaters in Sellersburg celebrated the holiday a day early. 

Sellersburg was one of several communities that decided to move Halloween up a day just in case the weather was too scary to get out in on Thursday. Most parents said they were pleased with the town's decision. 

"I'm ok with it," said Carla Walters, parent. "I would rather do it now than in the storms."

Over in Jeffersonville, the streets were quiet. Mayor Mike Moore said they made the decision to keep Halloween on the 31st and let parents use their best judgement.

"I do believe Halloween is about the kids and the families, so ultimately I think it is mom and dad's decision," said Moore. 

Moore said if the weather doesn't cooperate, he's encouraging people to take their children trick or treating on Saturday.

"Come on over here Saturday," said Moore. "We'll have candy."
