The Haunted Trail Fest has been canceled due to bad weather.

The city of Colleyville has canceled its Haunted Trail Fest after recent rains this week flooded the park at the Colleyville Nature Center. The event was scheduled for Oct. 20.

A statement on the city's website said there was a concern the weather would affect the featured robotic characters and therefore the participants' safety during the event.

The Haunted Trail Fest would have invited guests to explore a wooden path filled with Halloween creatures, special effects and a costume contest.

At this time there are no plans to reschedule the event.
