The city of Fort Scott provided ample opportunity for its residents to get in the fall and spooky spirit as a number of Halloween events were held throughout the weekend.
The Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual downtown Halloween parade Saturday morning, with a number of children, families and even their pets dressing up for the event. A pumpkin recipe contest was also held as well as photo opportunities and other festivities.
Buck Run Community Center also invited families to come Saturday morning to make Halloween crafts with Fort Scott Middle School volunteers or Sunday afternoon for a pumpkin carving contest.
Other events included Trunk or Treat activities at area churches, costume contests at local businesses and spooky trolley tours hosted by the chamber of commerce.
