A Halloween Parade & Fall Festival November 7, 2014

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Humor.

Tired of waiting for Trick or Treaters to ring our bell, we went out looking for them.

And found them in droves.

At the Trail of Treats sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.

This mom seemed a bit protective of her dragon.

In addition to a Costume Contest, the kids had a chance to march in a Halloween Parade.

It looked like so much fun that most of the parents joined in.  Costumes optional.

At the end of the Parade route, we popped in to the Harvest Festival at Anna Maria Elementary School.

In the lobby, we found a Bake Sale.

With table after table of baked goodies.

Amazed by the quantity and quality, we bought a package of Baklava . . . to assist the school’s fund-raising efforts.

In addition to baklava, there were cakes, cookies, cupcakes, brownies, popcorn balls, witch’s fingers, cake pops, etc.

We have never seen so much sugar in one place at one time before.

The tables ran down both sides of the hallway.

Guarded by witches, scarecrows, ghosts, spiders, pirates, and hobgoblins.

The baked goods kept going and going and going.

Now we know why we haven’t had a single Trick or Treater ring our doorbell in the five years we’ve lived here . . .

They were all in a self-induced sugar coma at the school!

Aah . . . that’s sweet!
