Families brave bad weather, trick-or-treat on traditional Halloween date

(Continued)

"We were going to come regardless," Banks said.

New Life was one of the few locations around the city to observe Halloween on Thursday. Some other churches that planned for Thursday, like Wesley Free Methodist Church on Eighth Street, postponed their observance until Friday. City and county officials announced, due to weather, Halloween would be extended to Friday night. Many families out on Thursday said they would trick-or-treat Friday as well, an attractive two-for-one prospect for their children.

Good's Candy Shop on West 53rd Street saw heavy trick-or-treating traffic on Thursday. From 5 to 7 p.m., the store offered free candy to costumed children ages 12 and younger. Employee Carly Pidcock said they would continue the offer again on Friday night. Robert Gamble of Anderson brought his five children to the store simply because it was one of the few locations available. He said he still wanted his kids to enjoy the holiday despite the poor weather.

"I remembered this was one of the few places running today, and they wanted to go out," Gamble said. "We're going to hit up a few more churches that have Halloween tonight. We'll probably go out again tomorrow, too."

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
