The ground is still wet, some trees are still down, but Halloween will go on this year in Howard County.
The weather will not be perfect—the National Weather Service is predicting a low of 39 degrees tonight and a slight wind—so make sure your costume will keep you warm.
Howard County officials let locals know trick-or-treating is still on tonight on Twitter, but advised residents to make sure kids are accompanied by adults and to avoid hazardous areas still not cleaned up from the storm.
The county said homeowners participating in Halloween should leave their front lights on to let kids know it's safe to trick or treat at their homes.
In Ellicott City, residents are invited to trick-or-treat down Historic Main Street (which was thankfully spared from flooding) from 4 to 6 p.m. this evening.
Derek McGowan, the store manager of Party City in Ellicott City, said costumers were flowing into the store to do some last-minute costume and candy shopping.
"We've been more busy than usual because of the weather," said McGowan. "We closed early on Monday and had less hours on Tuesday."
He said they still had a good amount of kids' costumes as well as decorations and candy.
In order to stay safe on Halloween, the county recommended that children never enter a stranger's home and to make sure parents check candy before children eat them.
