LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – It was a soggy Halloween but one way or another families found a way to trick or treat in Louisville.

Despite rain clouds overhead along Hillcrest Avenue the show must go on.

"It was raining and I didn't think anybody would think to give out anything," said trick-or-treater Madelyn Sadowski. 

Madelyn was pleasantly surprised to find despite the rains, the spirit of the holiday was alive in Crescent Hill.

Roy Martin was not about to disappoint those Halloween diehards who were ready to brave the weather. 

Every year Martin decks out his house with more than a dozen scary clowns and takes pride in creeping people out.  

"People actually cross over the street to avoid the house when they walk by," said Martin. "I kind of like that a lot."

Even though some of his scariest clowns had to be moved indoors to avoid being destroyed by the weather.

"I have six of them, but none of them are out I had to pull them all in where you see my neighbor actually had some and he tarps them up," said Martin. 

Hillcrest homeowners are use to catering to the thousands.

"We passed out 4,500 pieces of candy last year and we ran out," said Kevin Sadowski, Hillcrest Avenue homeowner. 

Over at Oxmoor Centre, trick or treating indoors was a lot of families back up plans, prompting long lines and most stores to quickly run out of candy. Some had to resort to stickers others posted sad signs, but that didn't stop this group from having fun. 

"It was great for the kids for them to come out and have some fun and it's all about them at the end of the day," said Daryliesha Ward, parent.
