Halloween falls on Sunday this year but Smithville Police Chief Randy Caplinger says it will be observed on Saturday, October 30th in Smithville.
"Traditionally, when Halloween falls on Sunday, it's usually celebrated on Saturday, so the Smithville Police Department will have extras patrols out on Saturday. We'll be working the streets and our neighborhoods because there will be a lot of trick or treaters out. We want to keep everyone as safe as we can. So there will be extra patrols in the city. A lot of people will be out that night and a lot of children crossing the streets. We ask that everyone be extra cautious and if you see anything that you feel may be a problem, call central dispatch at 215-3000 and we'll answer those calls as they come in. We want everyone to have a good time, be safe, and enjoy Halloween."
The county will also observe Halloween on Saturday.
