Jessamine County offers old-fashioned trick-or-treating in lieu of large gatherings

The Halloween trick-or-treat tradition will continue this year in Jessamine County, but with one difference: there will be no Treats on Main in Wilmore or Spooky Time on Main events in Nicholasville. 

Instead, parents who want to celebrate Halloween with their children are encouraged to do so the old-fashioned way: door-to-door.

“I have collaborated with Nicholasville Mayor Pete Sutherland, Wilmore Mayor Harold Rainwater and Public Health Director Randy Gooch and the Jessamine County Health Department to determine the safest way to conduct Halloween in Jessamine County,” Judge-Executive David K. West said. “Because of COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, we are not offering large-scale events this year.”

Trick-or-treating in Jessamine County will occur from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31.

Tips on safe trick-or-treating practices will be available on the Jessamine County Health Department Facebook page.
