Halloween hoedown in Bay Roberts
For children with a sweet tooth, Halloween is the best time of the year.
On Oct. 31, hundreds of children broke out their best costumes with the intent of filling bags upon bags full of candy and other sugary treats.
The weather co-operated as super heroes, princesses, skeletons, ghost, goblins and even a viking knocked on every door they could.
After one house was conquered, it was time to sprint to the next house. After all, the faster you finished, the faster you could get home to enjoy some of your spoils.
It was scene that played out all over the Trinity, Conception and Placentia regions.
It was not only a hectic afternoon for some of the older children. New trick-or-treaters were accompanied by their parents, who unsuccessfully tried to rein in the boundless enthusiasm the evening produces.
Many adults got in the spirit themselves and donned a costume.
As the day stretched into the night, it appeared Cleary’s subdivision in Bay Roberts attracted its fair share of trick-or-treaters.
One home reported over 500 visitors by the time the evening was finished.
Madilyn and Andrew Akerman were amongst the many dozens of children who flocked to Cleary’s subdivision in Bay Roberts on Halloween.
These trick-or-treaters rapped on Scott Mercer’s front door on Cable Avenue in Bay Roberts.
