Frankenstein creature and Fred Flinstone caveman at Main Street
Trick or Treat in Huntington Beach
The person who said that
Halloween is for kids is dead wrong. In Huntington
Beach's Main Street celebration, the children look at
their parents as examples of what Halloween means.
Mom and dad deck out in their finest costumes so their
children will learn to be creative. The parents
know that this is one of the greatest days on earth.
It's the annual celebration where adults can indulge in
their fantasies by dressing and acting the part of some
character or personage. It's the one day society deems
it OK to let reality bend and act like a kid again. Wow, what a novel concept!
over a decade, Huntington Beach, California's Main
Street has closed around 4 p.m. on October 31 to make
way for the annual Halloween Celebration. Downtown
merchants hand out candy to trick or treat youth from 6
to 8:30 p.m. when the street is designated a children's
fun zone. Moon bounces, pony rides, petting zoo,
balloons and a costume contest all make this a night to
remember. And it's totally free. See the events calendar
