Though the weather was frightening all morning long, the sky cleared in time for all the little creepy cuties to turn out on Main St., Grantsville, for some haunted fun.

The night of frightening festivities began at 5 p.m. with a costume contest. Prizes were handed out for prettiest, ugliest, scariest, most original, and best all-around. Many showed up for a fun time.

Games for the children included cake walk, balloon dart game, witch hat ring toss, and bowling with pumpkins. The hayride by Chester Robinson was enjoyed by everyone.

VFW and Ladies Auxiliary gave out free hotdogs, hot chocolate, and candy. Lions Club handed out candy bars at the courthouse steps. Area churches participated in the cake walks.

The Calhoun Chronicle clown handed out scary spider rings and pencils to future writers. Some got candy from an Indian that represented the county clerk’s tribe.

The VFW’s annual haunted house was a crowd pleaser. People in the hunt for a trick instead of a treat waited in a long line to enter the terrifying territory.

Chronicle reporter Robin Gordon walked through the haunted house with her son, Levi. She said it was quite fun and also caused her to scream--both necessary reactions for a successful haunted house experience.

The event was accomplished due to efforts of a small committee: Beverly Morford, Melissa Keener, Geneva Nicholson, Linda Staton, Connie Schoolcraft, Frances Tanner, Pam Davis and Charles Stephens.
