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.

Just another day in paradise. Temperatures surged back into the low 70's for the first time in a week and a half and with southerly winds finally returning to the region, more warmth is on the way for the Tri-State. In fact, this evening looks nothing short of absolutely gorgeous across the area - by dinnertime we'll have fallen back down to 71°, but only as low as 58° by 10PM. So, if you have plans out and about this evening, all you may need will be a sweatshirt. We'll also remain relatively mild early Saturday morning, especially when you compare Saturday morning's anticipated low of 48° to previous mornings earlier in the week. Brrr.
