Halloween is quickly approaching and kids will be scouring the streets in attempts to gather as much candy as possible within the allotted time. Each city has it’s own Trick-or-Treat times, so pay close attention to when your little one has to be off the street. There are also several church sponsored events held during this time.
The City of Russellville will be celebrating Halloween on Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 4:30-7 p.m. This is the time children can go door to door for treats, but they must be finished by the allotted time.
“I had several calls asking me to change the day because it’s Wednesday night and churches have services. If it had landed on a Sunday I would have, but I think it is fine to have it on Wednesday,” said Russellvile Mayor Mark Stratton, adding, “I’m sure some churches will be having Trunk or Treats that night as well.”
The City of Auburn will celebrate Halloween on Wednesday from 4-7 p.m. and the City of Adairville the same as Russellville on Wednesday from 4:30-7 p.m.
The City of Lewisburg, however, will be celebrating on Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 5-8 p.m. City Clerk Angela Sweeney said the date was chosen because of church on Wednesday night and because the city churches get together and have a community festival on Tuesday, Oct. 30 on Second Street.
