Pretty princesses, Incredible Hulks, Spidermen, and cute, costumed kids of all sizes flooded historic downtown Prattville Oct. 28 for the annual Candy Walk event.
Over the years, this event has continued to grow in popularity and size. It is FREE, but participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the Autauga Interfaith Care Center.
Monday night the crowds came early and stayed late. Many of the kids were joined by parents who also got into the spirit of the season, donning their own costumes. While Halloween is still two days away, this was a pre-cursor to what is to come Thursday. Streets were blocked off for safety and there were plenty of law enforcement and first responders participating as well. Businesses and organizations set up booths throughout downtown, handing out handfuls of treats, much to the delight of the participants.
Our photographer Bob Ealum was there to capture these photos! We want to remind everyone that if your kids will be participating in Halloween door-to-door trick or treating, please make sure they have flashlights, reflective clothing and chaperones. For travelers that evening, be mindful of the kids whose focus might not be on safely crossing the street. Slow down, keep an eye out, and let us hope everyone in the area has a fun and safe Halloween.
