It takes a Village (to trick-or-treat)

“Some of the kids get really creative,” Daveigh said. “It’s great to take a break from work to participate in this fun tradition.”

Wright agreed with Daveigh and said she had a great time and that it was the highlight of her day.

“You could tell when the kids got their favorite candy because their faces would light up with joy,” Wright said. “I didn’t think I would like passing out the candy as much as I did, but it was so much fun.”

6-year-old Oliver McMillin was a firefighter for Halloween and got a whole bag of candy from just two blocks of The Village.

“I am so excited to get home and eat all of this candy!” McMillin said.

The party was forced to come to an end when it started to rain at 4:20. The workers started to retreat inside and the families gathered up their things and headed home. Every kid there definitely left with at least a handful of candy, and that was only the start of their Halloween night.

“We had so many more kids this year than last year,” Wright said. “We were scared that we wouldn’t have enough candy for everyone!”
