City of Minden and Town of Sibley are encouraging their local trick or treaters to observe Halloween Saturday, October 30.

Greater Minden Chamber of Commerce and City of Minden are planning a Minden Fall Fest Trunk or Treat event at the Minden Recreation Center from 5 until 9 p.m., encouraging businesses to decorate their vehicle trunks and provide goodies for Trick or Treaters.

The Minden Police Department is collaborating with the Chamber, along with Minden Fire Department, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office, Dubberly Police and Wildlife & Fisheries.

Jason Smith, president of the Minden Police Association, said the groups will be handing out candy.

“We are going to try and do some K9 demos, too,” he said.

Donations for candy are greatly appreciated, he added.
