Stafford Closes Main Street For "Spooktacular" Halloween Event

Courant Community

On Oct. 29, Main Street could have been called a "ghost town" of sorts, had it not been for hundreds of kids dressed as everything else under the sun – not just ghosts, but witches, wild things, movie characters, superheroes, and much more.

Judging by the turnout, the annual Trick-or-Treat on Main Street event was a great success.

For two hours, the street was closed to allow for safe door-to-door trick-or-treating at downtown businesses and at First United Methodist Church, where a trunk-or-treat was being held.

Some shops were open late, allowing guests to come inside to shop or browse and enjoy games, snacks, and other goodies.

A haunted house, next to Haymarket Square, provided another level of excitement, as did the Stafford Garden Club's annual scarecrow contest.

Chills and thrills, but mostly smiles, made for a happy Halloween "brewing" with fun.
