Trick or treaters hit Sulphur streets on Saturday night

By Crystal Price - bio | email

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - Residents in Sulphur observed Halloween on Saturday night with several events and door to door trick-or-treating.

First Baptist Church of Sulphur and Henning Memorial United Methodist Church held their trunk-or-treat events and games for the children.

More than 30 vehicles lined the parking lots at each location and handed out candy to trunk-or-treaters from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Patrons said although they did not celebrate Halloween on the traditional day, they did feel that observing the holiday on Saturday was beneficial in different ways.

"I wish we could do it today and tomorrow to get the candy but tomorrow is a school night so I'm glad we're doing it tonight," said Kaytlin Doucet, a resident of Sulphur.

Some residents are thankful they got to celebrate Halloween on Saturday because of their church schedules.

"It is good to know that Sulphur recognizes Sunday, and the significance of Sunday and families going to church," said Mary Lejeune, a resident of Sulphur.

Cities and communities set to observe Halloween on October 31st include Lake Charles, Westlake, Moss Bluff, Iowa, and Welsh.

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street. If you drive down the stretch of Division Street, in between Ryan and Bilbo, you're probably used to avoiding a sinkhole. The most recent one was fixed Tuesday, caused by a cracked drainage line under the street where water seeped out and created a void. “They just go in, cut out a section and pour as...
