Switch Halloween 2015 in Lexington, KY from Saturday, October 31st to Friday, October 30th

Halloween occurs on October 31st, 2015. That is the same day that Keeneland will be hosting the biggest day of the Breeder's Cup for the first time which is a major event for Lexington. There is also a UK Football game that day.
With two major events already scheduled for October 31st adding a 3rd major event like Halloween would stretch city resources such as police even further, increase pedestrian and vehicle traffic in these congested areas causing more congestion and potentially even dangerous situations and potentially discourage adults from participating in Breeder's Cup and UK Football game which are major economic drivers for our community.
We, the undersigned, call upon the Lexington Fayette Urban County Council to move Halloween from Saturday, October 31 to Friday, October 30 so that adults do not to have to pick between Halloween with their children and participating in the major events occurring on October 31.
This will allow for even distribution of events on Friday and Saturday, less pedestrian and vehicle traffic congestion in the affected areas promoting safer environments, and better distribution of city resources on Saturday.
