A ghostly good time

“There were so many people downtown. To see all the people, the participation by the downtown merchants, the help from the community, it was all very gratifying.”

The hope for next year is to increase the community participation. Event organizers got a late start in promoting the campaign for the public to donate candy to their favorite downtown merchant.

“We had some candy donated, but I thought there would be more,” Boyer said. “The merchants that participate did have to pay a little bit less for candy this year.”

Even the idea of the old mill whistle sounding to begin trick-or-treating after the costume contest proved a fine idea.

“We had to sound it a little early because there were so many people and a few had started to trick-or-treat,” Boyer said. “But overall, it worked really well and the children were very well behaved.”
