In one of the largest county sponsored events, "Halloween in the Park", last week's trick or treat celebration drew a crowd of around 5,000 people to the Macon County Recreation Park.
With 30 businesses, organizations, and non-profits on hand to pass out candy, with a kids section full of bounce houses and a hayride around the park, Halloween in the Park has continued to grow into the second largest county sponsored holiday event, second only to Fourth of July.
"I am always amazed at the turnout for Halloween in the Park," said Macon County Recreation Director Seth Adams. "It is a great night for our department and for the county. We are already looking forward to next year."
