Edmonson Voice Staff Report
County and city officials have announced that Halloween will be celebrated on Halloween night, Tuesday, October 31, 2017 from 4pm to 7pm in Edmonson County and the Brownsville city limits.
Edmonson County Parks & Rec will host Halloween on the Square, that is expected to bring out a couple thousand people to the courthouse square beginning at 4pm on Tuesday.
Sheriff Shane Doyle says that he and his deputies will be patrolling extra rounds on Halloween night and he's offered some safety tips for a safe night out.
"We want everyone to have a safe and fun night," Sheriff Doyle said. "Please make sure all children participating in Halloween activities have adult supervision and be aware of extra traffic. Only visit homes of those you know while trick-or-treating, or well-known businesses and reputable events. We also stress for parents and guardians to inspect all candy and treats afterwards."
Officials also advise drivers to use extra caution as little pedestrians will be out and about, many with masks or other costume items that may affect their vision.
Several churches and civic organizations are also holding various Halloween activities. Both city and county officials ask that all trick-or-treating be concluded by 7pm.
