Most cities are telling parents to use their best judgment and watch the weather while making Halloween plans. In Madison, one citywide celebration is being impacted and is now going indoors.

Organizers of the Halloween on Main event decided to move the festivities to Dublin Park. Hours after making the decision, staff scrambled to get things set up. An empty meeting room at the new location was quickly transformed into a Haunted House, complete with a tunnel.

Wednesday, the city decided to make the change to Dublin Park because it was too risky to keep Halloween on Main Street. With about 24 hours to get ready, organizers called in extra volunteers to help out, and they plan to work late into the night.

Along with the haunted house in the meeting rooms, trick-or-treating, games and a costume contest will take place in the gym.

"We want to do the event on Halloween. Yes, we would love to be downtown because it is Main Street, but due to the weather, we want the children to be safe, not get wet, and not get blown away. We decided to move it indoors so our children could still enjoy the traditional Halloween event," said Gayle Milam with the City of Madison.

The event starts at 5 p.m. Thursday and is free to the public.
