10-30 Halloween Hoedown 1.jpg

The courthouse lawn reflects in the sunglasses of Malory Trivette, 9, as she waits in line for candy during the Halloween Hoedown. Trivette hopes to be in law enforcement someday, so she decided to depict a police officer for Halloween. Thousands of other children flooded downtown as vehicles were veered from Main Street to make way for an evening of early trick-or-treating.

Both cities of Richmond and Berea are planning to resume traditional Halloween festivities this year.

Last year, many of the county’s traditions were restructured or abandoned due to COVID-19 concerns.

Next week on Oct. 28, the Richmond Parks Department is hosting their annual Halloween Hoedown event.

Typically, the event is hosted on Main Street in Richmond, but this year, the event will be in-person on the walking trails at Lake Reba. 

Parking will be available in the Paradise Cove Aquatic Center or Adult Softball Complex parking lots.

Snack food vendors, games and activities will be located near Adventure Falls Miniature Golf and Batting Cages Complex. Entertainment for the event includes B. Michael Caudill Band and the Force Dance Project. 

Festivities will kick off at 6 p.m. and continue through 8 p.m. Free activities include community candy booths, kid’s games, music, snack food vendors and more.

On Sunday, Oct. 31, Berea will host their 20th annual Halloween in the Park event beginning at 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Berea Community School parking lot. According to the Berea Park’s Facebook page, this event will be a drive-thru style, trick-or-treat event with vendors handing out candy. 

Door-to-door trick-or-treating in Richmond and Berea will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Halloween.
