It’ll soon be Halloween and in Bourbon that means it’s time for the 5th Annual Bourbon Halloween Family Fun Night. On Friday, Oct. 25, starting at 5 p.m., the streets of downtown Bourbon will once again be closed off until 6:30 p.m. to allow for safe trick or treating.

During trick or treating, the First Baptist Church of Leasburg will be selling hot dogs and soda with proceeds going to their relay for life fund. Any business or organization wishing to set up a table free of charge in the blocked-off area is welcome, and they need to be set up by 4:45 p.m. and ready for trick or treaters. You can also play a game if you wish.
