The Lewisville Fire Department and Lewisville Baptist Church hosted separate Halloween events Friday evening that were attended by families and youth from Lewisville and surrounding communities. I tried my best to be at both places at once!
At the Lewisville Fire Department, several large inflatable Halloween displays and a costumed Dalmatian mascot drew the curious attention of young trick-or-treaters. After making their way through a spooky maize (constructed of hay bales) and collecting their treats, many families went on a pleasant hayride that circled Shallowford Square and returned to the fire station.
Meanwhile, at Lewisville Baptist Church, trick-or-treaters attending the church’s Trunk or Treat event were greeted by enthusiastic church members offering candy treats — with flare and originality — from their car trunks or truck beds. And as if that weren’t enough, the church then provided free hot dogs, soda, popcorn and cotton candy to its delighted visitors.
With my time being split between the two events, it was a bit of a challenge to try to cover both events well. The main challenge I faced, though, was the diminishing daylight. As the late-evening light gradually faded away, it was increasingly more difficult to get quality shots, even using a flash, which does not always yield the kind of natural-looking images that I prefer.

Some big-time celebrities, superheroes, and storybook characters showed up yesterday at the Lewisville Library. Of course, most of them were four feet tall or less, and they were there to attend the library’s Halloween Party. The lively party was complete with refreshments, a story time, Bingo and crafts.
The list of attendees included the likes of Elvis, Superman, Spiderman, Madeline, Minnie Mouse and two Scooby Doo stars. I also spotted a tiger, several princesses, a pirate, a witch and a gladiator.
Despite the non-stop energy of the crowd, things remained very much under control — due in large part, I think, to the no-nonsense policeman who was also in attendance.

Have a fun and safe Halloween, everyone!
There she was, looking so radiant, so…ummm… “outstanding in her field,” if I may abuse the pun! But she’s not alone. Located in numerous yards throughout Lewisville are other notable characters decked out in similarly fashionable duds.
