Running Down Some Halloween Treats

Three young girls dressed as Elsa, one of the princesses in Disney's Frozen, run toward one of their candy destinations last weekend during the Fourth Annual Sandy Hook Halloween Walk. Girls in the light blue gowns seemed to be everywhere for a few hours on October 25, as children dressed up to give their costumes a trial run (literally, in this case) in a daytime event in Sandy Hook Center. Nearly two dozen local businesses welcomed visitors through their doors. Tonight it's time for the rest of the town to celebrate Halloween, with costumed residents visiting neighbors. The largest contingency, however, will certainly find their way to the Borough to see what Main Street residents are offering by way of decorations and treats this year.
