Several spooky events planned for weekend
With Halloween falling on Sunday this year, Lincoln Parish plans on getting an early start on the holiday.
Most festivities are scheduled for Friday or Saturday, starting off with the Howling Halloween Downtown celebration that will begin at 4 p.m. with trick-or-treating at stores along North Trenton Street, Mississippi Avenue, Alabama Avenue, Park Avenue and in Railroad Park.
One new event this Halloween will be a Pumpkin Glow at Dark. Contestants ranging in age from 6-adult can bring a carved pumpkin to Railroad Park by 4 p.m. Friday to enter the contest, which will be broken up into categories determined by age.
