Halloween preview in Fayetteville

Hundreds of costumed children stopped by the very busy Stonewall complex in downtown Fayetteville last Saturday. In addition to Market Day, the annual Trick or Treat on Main Street event was also taking place, featuring rides, games, informational booths and more. While kids enjoyed trick or treating from table to table, they also took part in the costume contest. The headless man (below) and Candy Queen (main photo) were both award winners in their age groups. Photos/Michael Boylan.
