In spite of the cancellation of the City of Woodruff’s official Halloween on Main event due to inclement weather, many families still made their way onto Main Street to enjoy trick or treating at the local businesses.
Notable faces included city councilman Kenneth “Turk” Gist, who passed out candy to eager ghosts and goblins. Brandy Laney, owner of Humble Grounds, opened her doors and provided much needed fuel in the form of fresh ground coffee and confections to parents. Tracy Sanders passed out candy with her husband David in front of her store Peachy and Posh.
The Stone Soup Storytelling Institute at MUSE 134 also handed out sugary treats, and concluded the night with reading stories from the Scary Story Contest put on in co-operation with The Woodruff Times newspaper.
Other downtown businesses that stayed open to accommodate the festivities included The Yellow Butterfly, Jay’s Prepaid Wireless, Cash for Gold, Scurry’s on Main, and Rotties 221 Biergarten.
Families from Woodruff and the surrounding areas enjoyed the cool weather that blew in after the mid-day storms passed. “The kids had a wonderful time, good show up down here” noted Randal Smith from Enoree.
The friendly atmosphere, creative costumes, and generosity of local business owners made for a fun night of spooky fellowship on Main Street.
