Worried that stormy weather in the forecast for Halloween will ruin your children’s trick-or-treating?
Don’t fret. Sheriff Troy Young announced Tuesday afternoon that he is moving his annual Project Safe Streets to Eagle Lake Convention Center, pavilion two, to allow children and their parents a chance to enjoy Halloween without worrying about the weather.
The event was previously scheduled to be held in front of the courthouse in concert with the City of Lawrenceburg’s Trick or Treat on Main.
According to a press release issued Wednesday morning, city hall will reschedule trick-or-treating hours for Friday, Nov. 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. due to the threat of severe weather.
The city is also moving its 'Trick or Treat on Main' event to Friday, Nov. 1 from 5-7 p.m. in downtown Lawrenceburg.
Project Safe Streets will be held on Halloween on Thursday, Oct. 31 from 5-7 p.m.
Young said businesses and church groups planning to pass out candy are welcome to join him, adding that County Attorney Bobbi Jo Lewis and County Clerk Jason Denny have already decided to pass out candy at Eagle Lake.
The Anderson News will also be there, and the Anderson County High School team is scheduled to perform.
Eagle Lake Convention Center owner Brad Smith is donating the facility for the event, Young said, and will also provide tables and chairs to businesses passing out candy.
The sheriff’s office will pass out candy, glow sticks and reflective bags.
