Parking plan released for Little Goblins Galore Halloween party
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Little Goblins Galore is a Halloween party thrown by Lexington Parks and Recreation at McConnell Springs each year that’s about fun, not fright.
Geared for children ages 12 and under, the Little Goblins will gather at McConnell Springs from 1 – 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 15, to enjoy an enchanted character trail, a petting zoo, special entertainment and more. Food and soft drinks will be available to purchase throughout the day. Cost per child is $5 and is free for chaperones.
In recent years, more and more Little Goblins have been attending the event. Parking at McConnell Springs has become difficult, so this year no public parking will be available at the McConnell Springs parking lot. Parks will be running courtesy shuttles between the Lexington Waste Management Training Pad at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike (across from the Lexington Humane Society) and McConnell Springs. The handicap accessible shuttles will run continuously throughout the event from 12:30 – 5:30 p.m. Drop off and pick up locations will be identified at each location.
“The goal is to make the event safer for everyone,” said Amber Luallen, Parks Cultural Arts Manager, “especially Little Goblins in Halloween costumes that sometimes make it hard to watch for traffic.”
