Halloween is just around the corner, and the city of Knox has more plans than just regular trick-or-treating. While the hours for trick-or-treating have been scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. CT on Oct. 31, Mayor Rick Chambers has announced that a costume judging contest and refreshments will be offered at the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center, located at 55 E. Lake St., immediately following trick-or-treating.
