Capital Heights blocks streets during Halloween for neighborhood block party

Local News

Bunnies, Raggedy Ann dolls and lions were just a few of the costumes people and animals wore this Halloween.


While trick or treating and playing games everyone agreed the best part about Halloween is the candy.

Capital Heights avenue decided to block off the street while the children trick or treated.  

“The safety is great,” one parent said. 


Matching costumes was a big trend this year. One family says since their child was born, they couldn’t wait to all be dressed up alike.

The Heaton family dressed as characters from Harry Potter.  “We’re living out our dream [in our son], Eleanore Heaton said. “Harry Potter is one of the things we had in common when we first started dating and now it’s all coming together,” Eleanore’s husband, Joe Heaton, said.


While some kids are only concerned about the candy, others say they love the freedom they have during the holiday. 


“Halloween is a good time to express your passions because you can take a costume from like a cartoon that you’re watching and wear it. You can also hang out with your friends and just have fun,” Cadence Perret said. 


Overall everyone was excited to trick-or-treat, and they say they can’t wait to do it again next year.
