Halloween 2014 in Newtown, CT was a very different experience for us this year.
In years past, we've been at the Main Street home of a friend and watched the Halloween happenings from someone's front porch. It was a great way for us to experience Halloween for many years. Both of us, but mostly Richelle has handed out candy to thousands of trick or treaters over the years from this friend's home.
But, we've never actually participated with a trick or treater or anything.
This year - 2014 - we broke away from what was familiar to us and took our grandson trick or treating down Main Street. Riley, the Real Estate Dog, joined us, too. Our grandson was dressed up as the Scream character, but being 5 years old, he thought he was a ghost.
First, let us talk about the homes that were decorated for Halloween. AMAZING!!
Secondly, let us talk about the number of people on Main Street. ALMOST CRUSHING!!
Richelle got so overwhelmed with the whole experience and caught up in the moment that she forgot to take photos of Halloween 2014 in Newtown, CT. So, we contacted a friend who had posted some on his Facebook page for permission to use some of his photos. Thankfully, Victor Ellul said YES!
Here is a samping of what what we saw on Main Street for Halloween 2014 in Newtown, CT.
