UNION COUNTY — Halloween arrived two days early at Ellen Sagar Nursing Home and Jonesville Elementary/Middle School which held their fall festivals Tuesday evening.
The staff and residents at Ellen Sagar handed out candy to little treat or treaters who arrived in their Halloween best. Children lined up to receive candy from the residents and then got even more candy from staff members who decorated their cars and trucks as part of the trunk or treat portion of the evening.
The halls of Jonesville Elementary/Middle School were filled with students in costume who heard scary stories and took part in other activities. Many of the students also participated in a costume contest that ended the evening.
The celebration of Halloween is just getting under way and will continue Thursday night with Halloween Downtown in downtown Union from 4-6 p.m. There will also be a Candy Fest sponsored by Fairforest Baptist Church in the Union County Stadium parking lot from 6-8 p.m.
