Every year on the Saturday before Halloween, the Piedmont Avenue merchants sponsor a Halloween Parade and trick or treat event. Part of the avenue is closed, music is performed, and kids (and their parents) in costume can find treats at many of the retail shops on the street. Afterward, everyone makes their way to Mountain View Cemetery where a pumpkin patch, bouncy games, face painting, balloon animals and free food are offered. It rained this year, but this did not discourage the turnout. It did, however, discourage my camera. So this photo is brought to you by Halloween past. Have fun ghouls and gals.
