Witches, Ghosts, And Ghouls Descend On Sandy Hook Center



Text Size

Although it was mild and sunny, midday Saturday, October 26, was a spooky time in Sandy Hook Center as parents brought seemingly hundreds of small children into the compact business district for some costumed pre-Halloween fun during the Ninth Annual Halloween Walk.

The Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP) sponsored the family-oriented event. The Halloween Walk lets participants display their costumes and collect goodies as they visit participating businesses.

The “pedestrian/walk” buttons at the four-way intersection of Church Hill Road, Riverside Road, Washington Avenue, and Glen Road got a workout during the event, as participants repeatedly triggered the traffic-signal controls to make it safe for people to cross the street.

Although the Sandy Hook business district is not the largest one in town, it likely is the most walkable one, when considering its small size and range of pedestrian amenities.

Sometimes the relatively narrow sidewalks in Sandy Hook Center did not seem wide enough to hold the throng of children and their parents at the Halloween event.
