SPOOKTACULAR EXTRAVAGANZA

Halloween Fun Event for Families and Pets - Click Here for Photos from the Event

This third annual downtown event held Friday, October 28th was certainly spooktacular AND spectacular with well over 2,000 people estimated attending! The City agreed to close W. Broadway from 4:45 – 8:30 p.m. which made for a much safer event this year.  A family games area and additional space for giving out candy was also added. We were also able to play Halloween music through our sound system that projected into the games area and along the street, which was a nice addition to the festive atmosphere.
