Trick or Treat draws all kinds

-A A +A

Treat or Treat on MainStreet Friday was a sight to behold. Creatures of every shape, size and age poured into downtown Los Alamos to see and be seen. From a 7-month-old pumpkin boy to a regal king walking an enormous gray poodle, the annual event had it all.

Retail outlets and other establishments joined in the fun offering candy and treats to anyone who stopped by with a bag in hand.

"We came out to build a strong relationship with the community," said Bandelier employee Shannon Dennison, who was manning a booth with her colleagues. "We are close to Los Alamos - Bandelier's our home - and we hope to make Bandelier the home of Los Alamos, too. We invite everyone to come out and see all the things we have going on."

Finishing Touch and Aspen Copies outdid themselves this year, turning their entire stores into elaborate haunted houses.

"This is our third year and we'll be doing it every year," said Finishing Touch employee Angie Maes. She looked bewitching in her flowing black outfit, stirring a steaming pot of witches' brew during the ghoulish event.
