In an attempt to keep kids out of trouble this Halloween weekend, a local barber is doing something positive, hoping that kids can gather in one place, show off their best costumes and have lots of safe fun.

It's a skate bash that'll be held on Saturday, October 29 from 6-11 p.m. at Crystal Palace Skating Rink, located at 3364 South Third Street, Memphis, TN 38109.

At the event, kids can compete for a $100 cash prize for the best costume. They can also ride hover boards.

Despite a number of reported incidents at Crystal Palace, the organizer reassured WMC Action News 5 that security will be on hand and kids will be safe. The organizer said this is an event to keep kids out of trouble.
