Large crowd gathers for Trick-or-Treat on the Square

The Arnold family dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz and stopped to visit with SparkyChilly weather greeted the crowd of ghouls, goblins, super heros and princesses to the downtown Mount Vernon square for the 27th annual Trick-or-Treat Around the Square.

Members of the Sheriff’s Posse provided traffic control as more than a thousand parents and children paraded around the square to collect sweets from businesses and organizations. For a listing of participating businesses, see the Nov. 2 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
