A change in the weather means it won't be as scary for those venturing out on Halloween tomorrow in the Okanagan and Kamloops.

Environment Canada is calling for sunshine during the day and clear skies at night.

The predicted lack of cloud cover means a bright evening for trick or treaters, and those looking for a good view of October’s second full moon of the month which is called a blue moon.
