Halloween Happenings

By Staff | Oct 28, 2009

Many local children got a jump on trick or treating when they attended the Haunted Trail in Paden City Monday evening. For a small fee the ghosts and goblins were able to trick or treat at several creepily decorated stations in the city park and then cap their walk off with a hay ride.
