Frightfully, Delightful Halloween Puts Smiles on Many Faces

In spite of a crisp, cold evening, the many children dressed up as ghosts, goblins, vampires, Spider-men, witches, Star Wars characters, rabbits, pirates, angels, devils, skeletons, dinosaurs, zombies, cowboys, princesses and even Wednesday Addams, kept a frightfully, delightful smile on their faces.

After all, they were on a mission for as much candy as possible.

They all seemed to enjoy the Trick-or-Treat Trail on the spookiest night of the year. There were witches riding, ghosts flying and black cats seen along the paths and the sidewalks. One good scare makes for a spooky good time.
