Acadiana: Halloween Schedule Changes

Before you finalize your trick-or-treat plans, there's some updates across Acadiana parents should be aware of.

The threat of rain on Thursday has forced officials in Church Point, Morse, Arnaudville, Krotz Springs, and Kaplan have moved their town's celebrations to Wednesday.

Basile's celebration will be on Tuesday night.

As Basile prepares for their celebration, the town is also setting up for the 47th annual Swine festival.

"I can remember growing up; that's the only thing we look for all week, going to the festival. Going to ride the rides and having fun," says Basile high school student Trent.

Every year, Halloween falls on the day before the Swine festival.

To make sure everyone can enjoy both events, Swine Festival Treasurer Rachel Fontenot says the town had to move up their Halloween celebration.

"We would never do without it. That's been a tradition for forever. It's been going on just like everywhere else, and our children look forward to it," says Fontenot.

To keep all families safe, the town will close off the main street.

"They decided to go ahead and do it again, and just block off that street so they don't have to worry about cars passing with the children out there," says Fontenot.

Church Point mayor Roger Boudreaux has decided to change his town's celebration for safety reasons.

"We have our policeman out there with their lights on riding around everywhere," Boudreaux says.
