The city of Princeton will host a citywide trick-or-treat scavenger hunt from 3 to 6 p.m. on Oct. 31.
The city will provide a clue sheet and a map for trick-or-treaters to show them the participating businesses providing treats and riddles to find the hidden fire truck that was taken by Frankenstein.
When the fire truck is found, trick-or-treaters will meet Frankenstein, turn in the completed clue sheet and be entered into a drawing for more than $300 in cash and prizes, including 12 cash prizes of $25 each, donated by the Princeton Rotary and Optimist clubs.
Business and organizations wanting to take part should call Mayor Kota Young at 270-365-9575 or 270-625-4827. Participating businesses can also provide individual prizes.
The Princeton Rotary Club is sponsoring a photo booth at Planters Pavilion next to City Hall on Halloween, with several backdrops available, a great opportunity to get photos of family trick-or-treaters.
Young said that the this year’s trick-or-treating is best left to the community.
“The city is not interfering with traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating,” he said in a statement. “That is a private decision between private individuals and not within the remit of the city’s authority.
“All we ask is that — as in all things — you use common sense and be aware of the guidance released by health care professionals.”
