City Announces Indoor Alternatives to Trick-or-Treating
LEESVILLE, La.--The City of Leesville announces local indoor events that can serve as alternatives in case weather conditions prevent trick-or-treating during the previously announced hours.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, located at 1003 N Gladys Street will host a movie night inside. The movie starts at 7 p.m. and there will be snacks and drinks for purchase.    

In addition, the First United Pentecostal Church of Leesville, located at 101 Nolan Trace, will host a Harvest Festival in the Family Life Center from 5-8 p.m.

If your organization is also hosting an indoor event and would like the City to promote it, please contact the City at 239-2444 with the details.

Regular trick-or-treating hours will remain in effect, rain or shine, as previously announced: October 31 from 5-8:30 p.m.

Witch Way to Main, an outdoor event hosted by the Friends of Leesville Main Street, will also continue, rain or shine, from 5-8 p.m. in the Leesville Main Street District. 

The City of Leesville, the best hometown in the world, is a historic yet visionary community. As the parish seat of Vernon Parish, where Fort Polk and the Joint Readiness Training Center are located, the City of Leesville is home to military families, retired veterans and a growing and strongly patriotic citizenry that provides the basis of a well-rounded and work-ready workforce.
