Downtown Warsaw was packed with ghosts, ghouls and princesses alike during the 2014 annual Spooktacular celebration Friday night. Hundreds of families filled downtown Warsaw along Center, Lake, Indiana and Buffalo streets to gather treats from local businesses from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Though trick-or-treating was the main draw of the event, costumed guests were also invited to participate in a costume contest at the conclusion of the event.
This year’s Spooktacular was sponsored by Miller’s Merry Manor, Warsaw Community Development Corporation, Warsaw Breakfast Optimist, Bowen Center, Downtown Merchants and others.
To accommodate the event, Center Street from Lake Street to Indiana Street and Buffalo Street from Market Street to Main Street were closed from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Kemrad was stationed near the corner of Buffalo and Main and Buffalo and Market to help children cross streets.
