Overton Trick-Or-Treating Still On

Overton County residents will have the chance to participate in trick-or-treating this year.

Both the city and county agreed that the local youth needed some normalcy this Halloween. County Executive Ben Danner said people that want to participate in giving out candy simply turn your porch lights on and turn them off if you do not want any visitors.

“The kids need to do some stuff normal,” Danner said. “But, who knows what the new normal is going to be. I do not think we will ever be back to a normal we had before. That is probably out the door now, but it is important for the kids. I hope everybody has a safe Halloween, and we do not have a bunch of cases.”

The Livingston Police Department recommends people trick-or-treating wear reflective clothing, have a flashlight and a rally point if you get separated. Danner said Fall-O-Ween remains cancelled to avoid an influx of thousands of people in the county.

“By no means are we cancelling Halloween,” Danner said. “Now, we did cancell Fall-O-Ween and what that means for the people of Overton County is for the past several years that has been our big Halloween thing. And a lot of people did not go to houses. They all went to that one lump sum of people.”

Danner said most trick-or-treaters will visit family members causing less traffic across the county.
