By ground or air, patrols monitor trick-or-treaters

On this Halloween, law enforcement hit the streets and the air to make sure trick-or-treaters were safe.

"We're looking for pedestrian traffic. The safety for those people," said KPD Officer Shawn Shreve, as he patrolled the streets of East Knoxville Wednesday. He said KPD was treating Wednesday like a holiday, with patrols focusing on two things: pedestrians and an increase in cars on the road.

"Most of the time you have kids running away from their parents. They start following some friends who thought are in their party," Officer Shreve added.

Thousands participate in the 'Race for the Cure'

Thousands participate in the 'Race for the Cure'

Thousands of East Tennesseans celebrated breast cancer survivors and those who passed away from this disease at the Komen-Knoxville Race for the Cure on Saturday morning.

10News reporter Allison Bybee started the runners with a blow horn. More than 10,000 people ran or walked, filling the downtown streets with pink.

Organizers hoped to raise $900,000 through Saturday's race. Those profits will help provide cancer research and support. Seventy-five percent of the money raised stays in Tennessee, helping cancer patients pay for bills and food.

Bikes and Brews event seeks to introduce folks to bicycling atmosphere

Bikes and Brews event seeks to introduce folks to bicycling atmosphere

River Sports Outfitters invited bicyclists, both veterans and newbies, to take a relaxing ride around Knoxville starting near Volunteer Landing.

The ride on Tuesday was scheduled to last around two hours and end with a few beers.

The idea is to introduce people to the great bicycling atmosphere Knoxville has to offer.

"Just to get people out there, it's a real low pressure ride, a lot of people intimidated by the riding, and just getting people introduced to the outdoor sports in Knoxville," said Scot Pierson, manager of River Sports.
