Halloween Happenings


October 29, 2020

Halloween as we know it has been canceled in many cities around Tennessee, but in Hohenwald there will still be places to go and things to do.

Due to COVID-19, the Lewis County South Central Area Fair Board and Hope Hohenwald decided to cancel their fall festivities.

However, your kids and grandkids will still able to attend a Not-so-Spooky Storytime, grab any amount of candy their hearts desire (even popcorn), and participate in a Halloween Parade if you attend the following events!

Your Halloween can start as early as 10 am in the morning if you have little ones running around! The Lewis County Public Library will be hosting a "Not-So-Spooky" Storytime on the lawn between the courthouse and library.

Costumes are encouraged. There will be some "Not-So-Spooky" songs to sing, "Not-So-Spooky" stories to listen to and treats to take 'n' make, weather permitting.

The Elks Lodge will still be putting on a Trunk-or-Treat event on Halloween from 2:00-4:00 pm. The event will consist of multiple vehicles with decorated trunks giving out candy to all those who come by.

The trunk-or-treaters will be able to vote on their favorite trunk, and whichever trunk wins will receive a trophy. The trophy will be given away at 3:30 along with gift baskets.

Those who will be passing out candy will be wearing gloves and/or masks, and the lodge does encourage as much social distancing as possible.

If you have loved ones who are residing at AHC Lewis County, then you will also have the opportunity to do something special for them.

This year the nursing home will host a Trick-or-Treat Parade from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, where friends, family and community members can come dressed up in their Halloween costumes and brighten the residents' day. Workers will also be there to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters while wearing masks and practicing social distancing.

Then make your way down to the Lewis County Sheriff's Department parking lot for another Trunk-or-Treat from 4:00-6:00 pm.

Then if you are ready for scary sights and fall festivities, Fall Hollow Campground and Resort will be hosting a Falloween Haunted Hay Ride from 7-10 pm on Friday and Saturday. Admission will be charged. Popcorn, refreshments and temporary tattoos will also be available.
