The City of Calvert City is urging residents to start planning now on ways to protect themselves and others this Halloween. The Calvert City Trunk-or-Treat Trail is scheduled for October 31 with a curfew of 10:00 PM. Calvert City asks that drivers and pedestrians be aware and prepared to stop at crosswalks.
Here are some tips for Trick-or-Treaters:
- Look both ways when crossing the street
- Be visible by wearing reflective tape, carrying a flashlight, or a glow stick.
- Don’t go trick-or-treating alone.
- Leave your porch light on if you want trick-or-treaters.
- Wear masks and socially distance
“The pandemic is still here. It’s important for us to continue to social distance and wear our masks for the safety of others,” said Jones. Local churches across the city are organizing safe trunk-or-treat events and the city will prepare a map of all the locations.
One stop this year, new to the Calvert City Trunk-or-Treat trail, is the Calvert Carve: A Halloween Pumpkin Fest scheduled for October 31 in Memorial Park. Stroll through Memorial Park on Halloween and see the carved and painted pumpkins submitted for the Calvert Area Development Association sponsored contest.
Pumpkin entries can be submitted to Memorial Park on October 28 from 3-7 PM, October 29 from 3-7 PM, and October 30 from 3-6 PM. Pumpkins will be on display on October 31 from 5-8 PM in Memorial Park. There are four categories: adults, high school, middle school, and elementary. You do not have to live in Calvert City to participate. Pumpkins can be carved or painted. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will be awarded prizes. Winners will be announced on Facebook on October 31. When submitting your pumpkin, please remember to write your name, phone number, and age.
In addition to this fun-filled event, on October 16, members of Calvert Area Development Association and the City of Calvert will be distributing free pumpkins during Food Truck Friday from 4-7 PM and also showing an outdoor movie.
If you plan to attend these October events, please remember to wear a mask and remain socially distant. If you feel sick, please remain at home. For questions, call (270) 395-7138 or by email at email@example.com.
