‘Safe Halloween’ to be Held Oct. 25 for Area Children

Posted on Monday, October 17, 2011 [3:28 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Area children might want to bring an extra-large bag to this year's "Safe Halloween" at Lindsey Wilson College.

At least that's the advice from the college's residence life officials.

Lindsey Wilson's 18th-annual "Safe Halloween" will be held from 6-8 p.m. CT on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

The annual event -- which is free and open to the public -- allows area children to collect candy by trick-or-treating through the college's residence halls. Area children and their guardians are led through decorated residence halls by LWC students; resident students, many of whom are also in costume, hand out candy to children. All items distributed are individually wrapped, pre-packaged store-bought candy. The tour takes about 45 minutes to one hour.

With the opening of Jerry and Kendrick McCandless Hall this fall, children will now collect candy from LWC resident students in six residence halls.

"We try to make sure they take home a lot of candy, and this year that shouldn't be a problem with six residence halls part of the tour," said Assistant Dean of Students Andy McAllister.

The six residence halls will be decorated in themes that will range from the ghoulish to the comical.

"One of the things children like about touring the residence hall is the differences between the halls and how they are decorated," said LWC Director of Residence Life Heather Davis. "The students love to decorate their halls. Some of the students spend weeks planning for this one night because they love to entertain the kids who tour the halls."

Lindsey Wilson College's 18th-annual "Safe Halloween" will be from 6-8 p.m. CT Tuesday, Oct. 25. For more information about "Safe Halloween," contact LWC Director of Residence Life Heather Davis at or (270) 384-8375.
