The crowd was not hindered despite the current pandemic as hundreds packed the Chalybeate Sports Complex this evening for the annual Parks and Rec Halloween event. Normally Halloween on the Square, county officials moved the event to the park for more room.
Hand sanitizer was made available at all booths.
Parks and Rec Program Administrator John Kiernan said the crowd moved steadily throughout the event.
"We didn't know what to expect as far as the crowd goes, but it's similar to about any other year we've had," he said. "We felt like moving the event to Chalybeate Sports Complex would be a safer location, give people more parking options, and have the ability to spread out more than the square this year. We want to thank all our local businesses and organizations for participating this year. We had to cancel our Easter event earlier in the spring so it was good to see everyone come out tonight."
We put together a slideshow below of many of the kids in their costumes.
