Halloween reset in Lanesville, Milltown, Palmyra

October 30, 2013 | 08:41 AM

With the forecast of potential severe weather during the evening hours tomorrow (Thursday), which is Halloween, Lanesville trick-or-treat times — both for the town and the Lanesville Jaycees — have been changed to Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. Halloween in Elizabeth will be held as scheduled at the South Harrison Community Center on Halloween night.

Palmyra has moved trick-or-treating to Friday, as well, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Also, all Halloween festivities in Milltown have been rescheduled for Saturday evening. Trick-or-treat will be from 6 to 8 followed by the "Zombie" walk at 8:30.

The Milltown Town Council made the decision to reschedule the town's official Halloween festivities after local meteorologists began forecasting the probability of heavy rain and high winds during the hours scheduled for trick-or-treat.

"The safety of the children was foremost in the minds of the town council when making their decision to reschedule these events," Milltown Chief Marshal Ray Saylor said. "We hope everyone turns out Saturday night and has a great time during the Halloween festivities."

Also, the Halloween at Hayswood event Thursday will move indoors to the Corydon Central High School from 6 to 8 p.m. Businesses taking part can start setting up anytime after 4 p.m. For more information, call 738-8236, 738-2195 or 738-4241.

    Trick or Treat
    October 31, 2013 | 09:45 AM

    Really sad Corydon Town Board members couldn't have done the same for our children, can you imagine how many people will be at the school tonight. I personally don't want to deal with a huge crowd of people and keeping my kids close. Kuddos to Old Cap United Methodist Church Trunk or Treat was a huge turn out. Crowd was larger than usual due to todays weather forcast I am sure. God Bless and hope the weather won't get too bad but looks like it will. I won't be taking my kids out in inclement weather. Hate to intrude on another community they may not be prepared for all the extra trick or treaters. I know plenty of people around here spend a fortune on candy and now what will they do with it???? Bad call not to change it what would it have hurt. Friday is good, no school the next morning!!!! Just had to rant I was fired up all day yesteray over their decision.

    Trick or Treat night
    October 31, 2013 | 11:38 AM

    It is just a real shame the children of this community is not thought of as special. Other towns around Corydon think Holloween should remain "for the Kids" Our Town does not care about our kids safety. What would it have hurt to move this to Wed or Friday??? Well we all know where our leadership stands don't we?

    How about the PARENTS make the decision on their kids safety? Do we really need the government to tell us to stay home if the weather is not favorable for trick-or-treating? Really?

    Common sense tells me to keep my kids at home. It's more about the government just changing trick or treat night, is that such a big deal that it can't be done??? NO it is not so many other communities have chose to do so. I know who I won't be voting for in the next election. Our officials are just to dang stubborn and must not like children to enjoy themselves I guess. I will be staying home and have not bought candy because we are usually out trick or treating and I am sure there will be those who will be crazy enough to drag their kids out. It is more about the principal of the whole situation with the date just being moved one day than anything. What is the big deal???? It is about kids being able to have fun outdoors, door to door, old fashioned trick or treating. But some just have to be party poopers!!!

    I don't understand how anyone came up with these ideals thought that trick or treating would be safer. Hayswood with many cars coming and going bringing kids or leaving or the high school having big crowds that excited kids could take off and get lost in. Even in high school with the bad weather when most parking will be a long walk in the weather either from middle school and especially the elementary. Don't think this was thought through very well. With school becoming year round and kids needing learn more in their first years let them still have something that's theirs to enjoy.

    zombie walk info

    My grandkids are younger than 10 and want to come to see this. Is the zombie walk in milltown suitable for this age or is it young adults and super scarey and not for children to participate or witness. Thanks.
