Community Trunk or Treat Set for October 31

The Louisville Fire Association is once again hosting a community-wide "Trunk or Treat" at the
Louisville Coliseum on October 31st. In conjunction with the Louisville Fire Department, area volunteer fire departments, the Winston County Sheriff's Department, Louisville Police Department and other First Responders, the event will be held inside the Louisville Coliseum from the hours of 5 p.m. till 7 p.m.

Last year's event was a major success and the sponsors are working to provide a safe and fun environment for community young people to celebrate Halloween. There are some changes from last year that include: moving the event inside the Coliseum providing for more parking and a safer environment and as a safeguard against inclement weather. In addition trick-or-treaters will be limited to those from the age of 12 and under. Participants will be stamped at the door. Last year's event drew approximately 1700 children.

This year's event will be expanded even further as local businesses are encouraged to take part in handing out candy as well. The Fire Association is asking all local businesses to participate by providing appropriate candy or funds to purchase candy for the event. If you would like to participate or donate, please contact Casey Hutto at 662-803-7830 or Jill Pearson at 662-705-1428. Candy donations can be dropped off at the Louisville Fire Department and monetary donations can be made out to the Louisville Fire Association and left at the Louisville Fire Department.
