Lake Placid Halloween street party to be discussed

— The Lake Placid Police Department has announced a meeting to discuss and explain the idea of a Halloween street party and trunk-or-treat at 9 a.m. Aug. 23 at the Lake Placid Masonic Lodge, 6 Park Ave.

The goal is to get businesses to join together with the community during Halloween 6-9 p.m. Oct. 31 with decorations and candy. Candy will be provided by merchants and citizens can decorate the trunks of their cars.

The police department believes this event is a safer alternative to allow children to enjoy Halloween.
