Young goblins take over Willis Park

Published 10:26 am Tuesday, November 3, 2009

Downtown Bainbridge became the center of ghosts and goblins Saturday afternoon, as hundreds came to enjoy the annual Pumpkins in the Park.

There were young zombies, two monkeys in a barrel, Michael Jackson look-a-likes and countless others dressed in original Halloween costumes—some that were just cute for a simple treat.

The City of Bainbridge hosted the event, including hayrides using city tractors, free popcorn and downtown merchants going all out for the trick-or-treaters.
