Each year, families in cities all around the United States go from door to door asking for a sweet treat on the night of October 31st. For Carterville, a yearly tradition is Pumpkin Path. During the Pumpkin Path, surrounding businesses and churches join together to host a big downtown celebration that includes candy, hotdogs, and chili. The night kicks off with a parade in which the participants of the Halloween costume contest and the band walk and play to the crowds.“The Pumpkin Path parade is always my favorite of the year.Dressing up in costumes and hanging out with my friends afterwards is a blast!” says Gabe Ballard when asked about this year’s event. Afterwards, booths with candy and food are opened to the public for people to visit downtown. Creative costumes come and go throughout the night. Many people participate in group costumes. Although it was a cold night this year, many still showed up to take part in the event as many kids left with large bags of candy and smiles on their faces.
