Time For Spooky Fun

2015 Halloween Photos-8.jpg

Halloween is a fun time for just about everyone, but for little kids, those young enough to trick-or-treat, it’s about as great as it gets.

The Nashville News will again be taking photos of children in their costumes this year, but with a change in venue.

The Nashville Lions Club, The Nashville Community Center, and the Nashville Ecumenical Youth Steering Committee will be holding their annual Halloween Parade, Carnival and Trunk-Or-Treat beginning at 3 p.m. at the Nashville Community Center on Sunday, October 30, and The Nashville News will be taking photos of costumed youngsters there.

The event kicks off at 3 p.m., with the parade around the community center, followed by the costume contest, the carnival, and the second annual trunk-or-treat.

Those wishing to distribute treats (or show off their decorating skills) for the Trunk or Treat are asked to be in the parking lot by 2:45 p.m., or to wait until after 3:30 p.m., to avoid presenting any danger to the kids taking part in the parade. Please be ready for treat distribution by 3:45 p.m.

For questions regarding the parade or costume contest, please contact Nashville Lion Russ Kohnen at (618) 318-1157.

For information regarding Trunk-or-Treat, contact Ecumenical Youth Steering Committee members Mike Savard, at (618) 314-5634, Pam Kellerman at (618) 201-0368, or Rick Harris at (618) 599-2910.
