There are two events make up Alternative Halloween Family Night.

The first is a “Trunk or Treat” at the Fairdale Christian Church beginning at 4:00pm to 7:00pm. Children will have a chance to have to trick or treat in the Church’s parking lot. There will be games and refreshments provided.

Councilwoman Welch has arranged for the Louisville Metro Police helicopter will also be on display for children to explore.

The Fairdale Christian Church is located at 9000 Brown Austin Road. This event is free.

At the second event, families can take advantage of a Halloween Chili Supper sponsored by the Our Lady Mt. Carmel Church from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. The cost for the Chili Supper is $3.00 for children and $5.00 for adults. There will be free games and entertainment for children at the event. The Church is located at 5505 New Cut Road.

“There are many volunteers who are working to ensure that our children have a safe Halloween this year. I want to thank everyone who is bringing these events together. It goes to show a true community spirit for the happiness of children,” says Welch. “Please come out and join me for Alternative Halloween Family fun.”
