A Sweet March
Davidson held its annual Halloween March on October 25, bringing hundreds of families downtown to gather treats from merchants on Main Street.
Amanda Preston, the town’s communications chief, expressed delight with the turnout for this year’s Halloween March. “We had about 725 kids, which is what we’ve been averaging over the last few years, as we normally get between 700 and 800 if the weather cooperates,” she said.
The weather was lovely. From 5 to 7 p.m., spooks, superheroes, aliens, wizards and royalty collected candy and other goodies—alongside cowpokes, farmers, and a jelly fish or two.
There was also a tall guy dressed as a photographer who took picture after picture of cooperative Trick or Treaters. You can see some of Bill Giduz’s Halloween images on our homepage, but all are posted on our photo site, gallery of images from Bill and other News of Davidson photographers, available to download at no cost.
