BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - It is Halloween time, which means it's time for Trunk or Treat. Bowling Green has multiple Trunk or Treats across the town. Each of them with the hope to make a family friendly, community event, with a safer Halloween experience.

"As times are getting a little more questionable, I think things like this, that families can come out to as a group are great," said Alicison Maghey. It was her first time going to the Trunk or Treat at the Hotrod Ballpark.

It's definitely a safe environment, where as door to door, you don't know everyone," Youth Pastor at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Allison Steen-Baker. They held a Trunk or Treat fall festival. Multiple cars were decorated, and they had a chili supper for attenders.

The Hotrod Ballpark held their 4th Annual Trunk or Treat.

"This is a safe environment for all ages. It's enclosed here at the ballpark," said Jennifer Johnson, the Director of Marketing for the Hotrods. The enclosed space had games for the candy collectors, vendors passing out candy from around Bowling Green, and free carousel rides.

The Medical Center brought their first responders out to pass candy out. Not only was this fun for the Trunk or Treaters to explore the firetrucks, but also because it helped them meet their first responders in a non-emergency situation.

"They can see the fire department, they can see the ambulances; it's so much safer," said Hero Meet goer, Kristi Reed.

Paramedic Kendra Messenger also gave 13 News some safe Trick-or-Treating tips for Halloween coming up on Tuesday.

"Always watch your children when they are crossing the road and wear something reflective," she said.

She also encouraged all parents to make sure their kids go to houses with lights on, and to check candy before consuming.

Trunk-or-Treaters enjoyed a lot of candy, and it was a good day in Bowling Green full of fall festivities.
