Dark skies and rainy weather only added to the ambiance Saturday at Artpark as the venue hosted its first "Hay-Man Happening!" fall festival. Children (and some brave adults) dressed up in their scariest and most creative Halloween outfits, had their faces painted, listened to monster-mashing favorite songs and grabbed a bite from some food trucks.
More than a dozen people participated in a "Scarecrow Fashion Show & Contest," walking along the pumpkin-trimmed "Hay Runway." Five-year-old Madison Harris of Sanborn was named the winner.
