Storms Unlikely to Scare Off Tonight's Trick-or-Treaters

Anticipated thundershowers may scare off some trick-or-treaters at this evening's Beggars' Night in Johnston, Iowa, but Green Meadow West drivers should remain vigilant for any ghouls and goblins who take a "never say die" attitude toward the annual collection of candies.

Children participating in Beggars' Night can also use flashlights, chemical lights, or reflective clothing to increase visibility in the less-than-ideal weather and light conditions.

In Johnston—as well as nearby Ankeny, Clive, Des Moines, Urbandale and West Des Moines—Beggars' Night is 6 to 8 p.m., Wed., Oct. 31.

In Adel, Grimes, and Waukee, the event is 6 to 8 p.m., Thurs., Oct. 31—the traditional date of Halloween. Waukee had originally scheduled its 2013 Beggars' Night for Oct. 30, but moved the event due to a conflict with a high-school football playoff game.

In Dallas Center, Beggars' Night is 4:30 to 6 p.m., Oct. 31.

The Des Moines Register has posted a list of all metro area Beggars' Night dates and times here.
