According to the Mayor of Boonville, Indiana, the city's 26th 'Boo in Boonville' Halloween event won't be happening in 2020.

Boonville Mayor Charles R. Wyatt on Wednesday released a statement on the cancellation of the event, saying that it wouldn't happen until next year.

"It is with great regrets I am announcing today that the 26th 'Boo in Boonville' is being canceled until next year," Mayor Wyatt's statement said.

Wyatt said COVID-19 safety concerns were the reasoning behind the cancellation of the event.

"The thousands of parents and children that attend each year all in close proximity is too much to do in these pandemic times," said Mayor Wyatt. "A Bigger and Better celebration next year---Happy Halloween."

This comes as the second local Halloween event to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the City of Owensboro recently announcing the cancellation of its 'Trail of Treats' event.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
