The recent drought in our region has put a strain on many popular fall festivities, but celebrations were in full swing for participants in one local Halloween event.
Some campers arrived two weeks ago for the annual "Spook Camp" at Levi Jackson State Park. Beginning Wednesday, families enjoyed cookouts, crafts, and activities for all ages. The campground wrapped up the busy weekend with a hay ride, haunted house, and treats for the kids.
"The kids get to go around to each camper that's got a trick or treat sign up and they get to trick or treat in a safe area and we'll probably have nearly 500 little kids running around trick or treating," said William Meadors with the Levi Jackson State Park.
The park closes its gates while the children and adults trick or treat to ensure their safety.
Park officials say the campground is already booked solid for next year's "Camp Spook" weekend.
