The City of Madisonville will be going ahead with Trick-or-Treating on Saturday, Oct 31st.

Families can go door-to-door from 3 to 7, that night.

The Madisonville Police Department is encouraging those who do not feel comfortable to hand out candy during the ongoing health crisis to be sure their front porch light is off.

The recommendation came as part of a video released to the Madisonville Police Department Facebook page encouraging best practices during the Halloween Tradition.

The department is reminding families to be cautios when crossing roads, stay on sidewalks whenever possible, and if your costume is dark carry a flashlight or glow stick to make it easier for drivers to see the group.

They also recommend planning out a trick-or-treating route ahead of time.

On top of these safety tips, TeamKentucky has also put out guidance to keep the spread of COVID-19 low during the holiday.

Those extra precautions include wearing a mask, wiping down candy before allowing children to eat it, and limiting the number of homes families visit.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
