It was a "BOO-tiful" night in Norwich (a photo essay part 1)
A night filled with good fun, laughter and kind hospitality
Ghostly Greetings, Norwich readers,
It was a “spook”tacular Halloween family event in downtown Norwich, Monday night, with groups of trick-or treaters dressed in their creative costumes.
I had a grim feeling and eerie vibes while walking around Main Street. The houses were decorated in a ghostly way, some covered in webs, others crawling with giant hairy spiders, scary black cats and tombstones in front yards, and frightening shadowy figures in the windows. I left in a hurry as this was all too startling for me to hang around!
Lions, witches, ghosts, a family of skunks, a dinosaur, and several princesses roamed the downtown streets - even a rock star and his entourage made an appearance. Only in Norwich.
The fun began at Tracey Hall with face painting, followed by cookies, cider and activities at the Norwich Inn. The Norwich Fire Department provided an open house invitation serving hot dogs to all and hosted a great jack-o-lantern event where the carved pumpkins of trick-or-treaters were lit and safely put on display. What fun! Of course, nothing calms your nerves on a frightful night like this other than a comforting cup of hot chocolate and the Norwich Farm Creamery was on hand to do just that. The Children’s Art Studio featured a slide show of a Jane Goodall chimpanzee themed event. There was something for everyone. Festivities wrapped up at the Norwich Congregational Church for a Hospitality Halloween where hungry trick-or-treaters were treated to soup, bread and cider.
With all the plentiful treats and activities made available, it was a sure thing there would be no tricks in Norwich this Halloween.
The night filled with good fun, laughter and kind hospitality.
