Jackson County communities have announced plans for Halloween events.
Seymour Main Street will conduct its 10th annual Downtown Trick-or-Treat from 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 24. Participating downtown merchants will have signs in their windows, and Seymour Main Street promotional committee and board members will greet Halloween-costumed characters on downtown street corners.
Then at 6 p.m. Oct. 24 the Seymour Evening Lions Club’s 50th annual costume parade will travel from the post office at Fourth and North Chestnut streets to American Legion Post 89 at West Second and North Pine streets. The Seymour High School Marching Owls will lead the parade.
That will be followed by a costume contest in the American Legion parking lot. Judging of costumes will be by age and categories.
Age groups are 2 and younger, 3 and 4 years old, 5 and 6 years old, 7 to 9 years old, 10 to 13 years old, 14 to 20 years old and 21 and older. Categories are best pet costume, best group of three and best band member.
Prizes will be awarded in each age group and category, and treats will be available to all contestants.
Restrooms will be available at the Jackson County Public Library during these events.
From 6 p.m. to midnight Oct. 28 and 29, a haunted hayride and a glow walk will be at Countryside Park along County Road 1000E in Crothersville.
