Halloween Brings Trick or Treat Goblins and Ghouls Downtown

(BEDFORD) – The “Scare Around The Square” brought goblins and ghouls, superheroes and mythical creatures to downtown businesses where the owners were anxiously waiting for the youngsters.

Despite the weather, there were plenty of monsters wanting to load their buckets up with candy and other goodies.

Scare on The Square was a fun event for the young and the old.

“I always enjoy events that bring events and people to our downtown,” said Julie Bailey Bex of Bailey’s Flowers.

Next door was Turner Contracting, who were smiling and handing out treats to the little ones as they went from one store to the next.

Youngsters go to Turner Contracting Inc. for some candy.

Following the downtown “Scare Around The Square,” many went into neighborhoods throughout Bedford, stocking up on more treats.

The area around 14th and M streets was full of trick or treaters.

Laine, Barb, Hope, and Bill Hoeferlin moved from Rensselaer, Indiana and love living in Bedford.

“We moved down here to Bedford about five years ago, and really enjoy the town,” said Bill Hoeferlin who moved his family to Bedford from Rensselaer, Indiana.

In the 1400 Block of 14th Street, a nice witch was brewing up a spell as several of the occupants added extra ingredients to the fire.
