JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) – Halloween may be a couple of months away but the city of Jeffersonville is in a midst of candy controversy.
The Parks Authority decided to do away with handing out free candy for trick or treating during Jeffersonville’s downtown Halloween.
The event ran out of candy last year before the Indiana side of the Big Four Bridge opened.
Mayor Mike Moore is determined to keep the trick or treating saying he’ll buy the candy if he has to.
Mayor Moore says Chris Coyle from Coyle Chevrolet called and offered to help finance the event.
No final decision has been made.
Jeffersonville’s downtown Halloween is scheduled for October 27.
