Costume-clad kids — not to mention a fair number of adults and pets — recently visited some of the area's downtown haunts in search of tasty Halloween treats. The Spirit Lake Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual Downtown Candy Walk Saturday afternoon. Many businesses invited the youngsters in or had goodies waiting for them outside as they traveled a long circuit through the city's business district.
The Milford Commercial Club held its traditional Business Trick or Treat the afternoon of Halloween itself. Children donned their costumes once again and paced the sidewalks of downtown Milford, filing baskets, bags and buckets with candy as they went. The various businesses displayed distinct commercial club signage to guide the downtown trick or treaters on their Monday afternoon quest for candy.
