Youngstown also celebrates season
Dreary weather on Sunday might’ve put a fright in the hearts of Lewiston merchants, but it actually served as an ideal backdrop for the annual “Trick or Treat on Center Street.” With the roadway closed, more children came out to collect candy and show off their stellar Halloween costumes.
The sidewalks, likewise, were crowded as families popped into stores and stood to watch performances from Adell’s School of Dance, Lewiston Dance and Janet Dunstan’s Dance Academy.
Over at the Red Brick Municipal Building on North Fourth Street, the Recreation Department hosted a “Haunted Hallway” and a “Skeleton Walk” scavenger hunt in Marilyn Toohey Park. Later on, “The Salem Sisters” stopped by for stories, photos and a little hocus pocus.
The Youngstown Halloween parade and trunk-or-treat events took place on a perfect autumn day last Saturday, with warm temperatures and sunshine. A total of 123 kids came out in costume and paraded down Main Street to collect candy from the businesses along the street. The parade made its way back to the Red Brick School for the first trunk-or-treat happening and some games to play. After the judging was finished, the First Presbyterian Church of Youngstown was awarded a prize for the best trunk. (Photos by Wayne Peters)
