Local neighborhood, church offers trick-or-treating alternative


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With Halloween approaching, many parents are trying to determine the best and safest ways for their children to go trick-or-treating.

"It's important because Halloween is such a special time for them and the traditional of going out and being able to do it with friends," a parent who did not want to be identified said.

The Cleveland Park Community in east Nashville is designating a single street for the upcoming holiday.

Trick-or-treat Lischey Street will allow children to safely participate in trick-or-treating.

Kelly Hicks is a mother of a three-year-old and an 11-month-old and is concerned about her children's safety on Halloween.

She told News 2 that she plans to take her children to Trunk-or-Treat at the Connell Memorial United Methodist Church in Goodlettsville, which is being held in the church's parking lot on Wednesday night.

"In their trunks, they set up a little candy station or toy station so all the kids trick-or-treat right around the trunks here," Hicks said.

Hicks told News 2 not only is there less walking for her children by attending the Trunk-or-Treat event, but she said there is also less risk.

"It's all right here, all in one confined area," she said.  "They're not going door-to-door with strangers.

Halloween this year falls on a Sunday so some communities are celebrating on Saturday.

In Camden, Benton County, all events, from trick-or-treating to church festivities, will be held on Saturday, October 30.
