Street Treats

Characters from the Star Wars movie franchise pause at the Friends of the Library Bookstore Friday afternoon during downtown trick-or-treating. Among them were, in front, Yoda (Dayne Garber) and Princess Leia (Sindelle Garber); second row, Anakin Skywalker (Brayden Garber) and a clone trooper (Koby Garber); and in back, Darth Vader (Taivyn Garber), held by Jody Garber. Hundreds of parents, children, fairies, pirates, butterflies, ghosts, goblins, vampires, zombies and just about everything else, traveled the downtown streets of Sweet Home on Halloween looking for candy. Among them were appearances by such famous personalities as Wall-E, Harry Potter, Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker, Yoda and a member of the metal band Slipknot. Spiderman and Batman reportedly appeared in multiple locations simultaneously, while the Hulk seemed to be in hiding this year. Following downtown festivities, trick-or-treaters traveled to the Holley Christian Church Trunk-or-Treat event at the Boys and Girls Club of Sweet Home and a harvest festival at Community Chapel before knocking on neighborhood doors.
