I have to say Halloween on Main Street this year was a great success! Back in our office @ Diamond Residential Mortgage we had at least three dozen little Trick or Treaters, everything from a little strawberry baby to a toddler UPS man (his costume looked real!) (Sorry Ron). I gave our visitors a little trick...they had to take their candy from a talking bowl that "reached out and touched them!" A good time was had by all! Thanks Mainstreet for making Halloween memorable for the kids.
