Halloween Fun the Small Town Way

Halloween

Small towns seem to bring out the best in folks when it comes to holiday fun, and here in Maine Halloween may be the best time of all.

Bony friends rise from the deep in boats that have long since ceased to float.

and ghosts and scarecrows have tasty treats to share.

 

In one small town giant pumpkins, painted and carved, line the street

 

while in another the main street is closed for an afternoon of trick or treats.  There are no tricks as every business participates in the fun with costumed employees handing out treats until there are none.

I don’t know what it is about small towns, but it doesn’t take much to bring out community spirit that makes holidays fun for everyone.
