Rain is in the forecast for Thurs., the night of the party.

Frederick, Md (KM)  The Frederick City Parks and Recreation Department has canceled the Eighth Annual Halloween in Baker Park event due to rain in the forecast for Thursday.

Due to the size of the event, and the hundreds of volunteers and staff who assemble and prepare the activities throughout the day, officials decided to cancel the party. “We feel it’s in the best interests of all those involved to make this decision today {Wed},” says Bob Smith, Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation, in a statement.
