It's Halloween once again in Edmonson County, and that means it's time to be on the lookout for goblins, superheroes, princesses, and everything in between. There are several events planned throughout the county in addition to the many youngsters that will be traveling door-to-door.
The Edmonson County Parks & Rec will be sponsoring the first annual "Halloween At The Park," at the HWY 70 Sports Complex. There will be booths set up from various county businesses and organizations in the park that will be giving out candy for the kids. The event will be set up much like a "trunk or treat," except candy will come from the folks at the booths.
"We're excited to be able to offer these kinds of events for the youth of our communities," said Coordinator Greg Hudson. "We're doing our best to make sure our Parks & Rec program accommodates as many families as possible. This should be a fun event for everyone and we look forward to seeing everyone come out a be a part." The event is scheduled between 4-7pm on Saturday. Hudson said in case of rain, the event will be held at the Community Center.
