Halloween night brought in cold weather, but also big crowds as the Prattville Fire Department hosted their annual Truck-A-Treat.
Located in the field and driveway of the McQueen Smith station, the PFD handed out candy to droves of children who started lining up around 5 p.m..
Firetrucks lined the sides of the driveway as kids made their trips in groups to each location, ultimately ending inside the station where there were several games for the children to play.
The excitement was palpable as the kids had a chance to not only fill their bags with candy, but also show off some off their costumes.
The attire ranged from harmless, such as Disney princes and princesses, to the more frightening – like Pennywise the Clown. Nevertheless, the goal was still the same for everyone involved – get as much candy as possible!
A big hit costume for the trick-or-treaters seemed to be superheroes. Many paid homages to Tony Stark and dressed up like Iron Man and the rest of the Avengers, while others took the DC route and wore Superman or Batman costumes.
Maleficent was also a trend, as Disney recently released the second movie to continue the saga.
It was a fun, yet cold atmosphere for all involved! This year, the event was helped by the Prattville Police Department, Autauga 911, Autauga Rescue, Autauga Sheriff’s Office, Autauga/Prattville Public Library, Russell Do It Center, and Brewbaker Motors.
