  • Hello many of the surrounding towns and cities Clay City, Terre Haute, Danville, Cloverdale, Greencastle,even Indianapolis as well as many more; have changed their Halloween Trick or Treat times to Friday due to the rain and storms that are supposed to be coming in. Will Brazil be doing this as well?
