Get a large costume to be able to wear a coat underneath.
(WZZM) -- It looks like rain is in the forecast for Halloween, but that doesn't mean you have to get soaking wet to get candy. www.GRkids.com helps us out with five tips for a dry trick-or-treat night.
1. Buy a costume that is one or two sizes bigger then you can where a warm coat and rain poncho underneath. This means the costume will get wet, but you will not.
2. If you want to save your costume from the rain, pick up a clear poncho to go over the costume. Also use a plastic candy back to avoid getting your candy wet.
3. Don't want the extra rain coat or poncho to ruin your costume? Make the poncho your costume. A white poncho can be turned into a ghost. You can turn an orange poncho into a pumpkin. Use a red rain coat and you can have a fireman. Also, hats are good way to keep you dry.
4. Don't trick-or-treat outdoors-- find indoors venues. Calvin College has Light Up the Night where you can trick-or-treat in covered apartments and halls. For other indoor venues check out http://grkids.com/grand-rapids-halloween-activity-guide-2013/
5. Why go trick-or-treating when you can stay home and start a new Halloween tradition? Grab a game like Candyland and add some real candy. Watch a Halloween movie and include candy. Just whatever you do, include candy!
