Spooktacular 2014 Wrap-up

 In Feature

The 25th annual WHNA Spooktacular nighttime trick-or-treating event took place in Area 1 (south side of Washington Boulevard to the north side of Vliet Street, 47th Street to 51st Street) on Saturday, October 25 with over 100 homes handing out over 90,000 pieces of candy! The perfect autumn weather brought out over 1,200 registered trick-or-treaters, along with their family members for a fun-filled night that started at Spook Central with the Annual Costume Contest sponsored by Rainbow Booksellers. From 6:30 to 8:30PM the streets of Area 1 were filled with wizards, witches, princesses and even jellyfish collecting candy. Many homes and front yards throughout Area 1 were fully decorated in a variety of styles and themes, including the 4-8 Dance Party on 48th Street and a pirate theme, complete with ship and cannons, on 50th Street. Thank you to Area 1 for hosting a fun, safe and festive night for the entire neighborhood!
