Witches, ghosts, pirates and princesses all hit the road Saturday night, October 31, and called on area to businesses and residents to trick or treat.

“We had 127 kids enter our drawing for prizes but I think there were a lot more kids than that trick or treating,” said Cedar Springs City Manager Christine Burns.

The city held it’s third annual Halloween Spook-tacular, with 16 businesses open for trick or treating, and 44 prizes given away in a drawing to kids who visited all 16 businesses. The drawing was held at the Kent Theatre, which was almost full. “It all went really well,” said Burns.

The weather was chilly, but there was no rain, which brought out a lot of kids. Many families ducked inside the The Springs Free Methodist Church for a donut and something warm to drink, after making the rounds of cars at Trunk or Treat and a turn on the giant slide.

According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, they had one problem with a party, but otherwise it was pretty quiet as far as police calls. They did have an extra car out on the road between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. as part of the OHSP alcohol enforcement initiative.
