Looking for a place to take the kids for Halloween? Several Linn County communities are planning free events to make it a safe holiday.
“Trunk or Treat on Broadway” is coming to La Cygne on Friday, Oct. 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 pm.
According to La Cygne Chamber President Russell Pope, Broadway will be shut down for the evening, and participating vehicles can park on both sides of the street for trick-or-treaters to access.
If you are interested in decorating a trunk and passing out candy, you can contact La Cygne City Hall at 913-757-2144, or Pope. There will be prizes for best decorated and spooky trunks.
Linn Valley Lakes will be sponsoring a trunk-or-treat event beginning at 6 p.m. on Oct. 30 at the Linn Valley Clubhouse. Chili dogs and drinks will be available at 5 p.m. for a charge for those who need to face the candy-seeking goblins on a full stomach.
Sunday, Oct. 31, is Halloween night, and several events are planned.
In Mound City, the First Baptist Church will have a street party on Sunday at the 212 youth building at 131 Main Street.
Organizers invite people to stop by for hot dogs, candy, and hot chocolate while they are out trick-or-treating. And visitors can try their chance at games that will be set up outside. For questions, contact First Baptist Church, Mound City at 913-795-2333.
