Three fire departments to host community treats

-A A +A

Traditional trick or treat hours will be 5-9 p.m.

 SHEPHERDSVILLE - Zoneton Fire Department has been the community place to go for kids on Halloween the past few years.

But, this year, a couple of other firehouses will be the scene of some free not-so-scary holiday fun.

Shepherdsville and Mount Washington fire departments will join in the community fun on Monday night.

In Shepherdsville, a trunk or treat will be set up with at least 50 stops for children to gather candy.

There will also be food and plenty of unusual looking characters - maybe even a few city officials.

Like the other events, funds for the Shepherdsville occasion will be donated from the community.

Shepherdsville and Mount Washington will both host the events at their main firehouses. 

Shepherdsville is located on Conestoga Parkway behind the government center.

Mount Washington is located on North Bardstown Road.

The events will be from 5-9 p.m.

In Zoneton, the granddaddy of Halloween fun, the festivities will again be held at the main firehouse on Preston Highway. Parking will be at Little Flock Baptist Church.

The event will run from 6-9 p.m. with 3,000 children expected to wind their way in and out of booths.

There will be food and other activities, such as hayrides.

Generally, Halloween hours for those trick or treating will be from 5-9 p.m. in Bullitt County. All Halloween activities will be done on Monday.

However, many churches are also hosting trunk or treat activities throughout the weekend. Check out The Pioneer News for details.

All police agencies will be on extra patrol on Halloween. 

Motorists are always reminded to be alert for children, especially in subdivisions.

Children are reminded to never eat unwrapped treats and to not eat treats until they have time to come home and sort through the goodies.
