McKenzie’s downtown streets and park were filled hundreds of adults and children for the annual Boo Bash, hosted by Bethel University and the City of McKenzie.
It was an evening of great, old-fashioned, and frightening family fun.
Events included: trunk-or-treat, a haunted train ride, costume contests, games, supper by the City of McKenzie, desserts by Bethel University, and much more.
In the gazebo, the city hosted a Boo Bash costume contest, with categories: tiny terrors (0-2 years), small spooks (3-5 years), middle monsters (6-9 years), older ogres (10-14 years), ghastly ghouls (15 years and up), and horrid haints (group or family entries).
Phi Delta Sigma had a haunted house on Lee Street for $5 per person, with proceeds benefiting the Laddie Lollar House. And Overflow Church on Broadway, allowed children to make their own cookies.
The weather was perfect for the Thursday evening event as youngsters made their way along both sides of Broadway Street to collect candy from local organizations and Bethel students.
