Nov. 2, 2019 — Halloween continued the sweetest tradition in Historic Old Town Florence Thursday as area merchants gave out candy to countless trick-or-treaters and their families.
Not only were the usual witches, dinosaurs and superheroes present, but so were a sea anemone, a Japanese temple and a dozen dogs in costume.
Even adults dressed up this year, with several Old Town merchants getting into the spooky holiday spirit. Other heroes also attended, some in their actual uniforms, like Florence Police officers and Siuslaw Valley Fire and Rescue firefighters, and some, like U.S. Coast Guard Station Siuslaw River members, in various pop culture costumes.
People from all around the community attended before heading to neighborhoods, Trunk-or-Treats, Halloween parties and the last night of this year’s Scare-CROW Haunted Maze.
