PRESTONSBURG — Ghastly goblins and grizzly ghouls, paranormal pirates and pesky pixies will all make their way up into this mountains this weekend, as the Heritage House Hotel hosts its annual Safe Trick or Treat event.

Doors will open for the haunting experience at 3 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 28, and stay open until 5 p.m. “We don’t stop it at 5; any child that is in line still gets in,” said operations manger Rhonda Thornsbury.

Thornsbury says people begin lining up in the morning for the event, and that more and more show up every year.

The annual spooktacular event relies on vendors and sponsors and caters to 3,000-to-5,000 people.

Thornsbury says that weather plays a factor as lines stretch outside and wrap around the building. “As long as it isn’t raining they will still come out.”

The business will be decorated up like a haunted house, and will play host to over 40 vendors providing a frightfully family friendly event.

Regular Trick of Treat in the city of Prestonsburg will be held Wednesday, Oct. 31, between 6 and 8 p.m.
