Following the costume judging, the Town of Vevay will hold Trick or Treating from 7-9 p.m. Any resident wishing to participate in trick or treating should leave their front porch light on so that children know that they may stop at that house.

In the East Enterprise area, New Liberty Baptist Church is again hosting its “Trunk or Treat” program in the parking lot of Switzerland County Elementary School.

That event will be held this Saturday, October 30th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.; and anyone who would like to participate can be at the parking lot at 5 p.m. to decorate their vehicle and prepare for the arrival of the children.

This event allows the kids to go around to different vehicles without having to get out on the highway.
