Selma gets spooky for Halloween

Published 7:51 pm Thursday, October 18, 2012

Halloween is less than two weeks away, meaning children, teens and many adults around town are probably scrambling to put together their costumes. With so many choices available, we understand the pressure (procrastination) of finding the perfect costume.

Will you decide to go with the Halloween classics like a witch, zombie or a ghost, perhaps something whimsical like a princess, ninja or fairy, or maybe something dealing with pop culture events like a presidential candidate or even Honey Boo Boo child. No matter your choice, the season of Halloween is here, and so are the exciting events that go along with it.

Whether you decide to go to the haunted history tours of Old Cahawba, Sturdivant Hall and the Old Live Oak Cemetery, the Monster March Fall Fest sponsored by the Downtown Selma Association and the city of Selma, the Halloween Party at the Times-Journal or the Kenan’s Mill Fall Festival, or Halloween parties hosted by family and friends, or perhaps all of the above, Selma will undoubtedly have a plethora of options for Halloween fun, and for that, Selma, we applaud you.

Selma is a great place to celebrate this spooky, fun holiday, before, on and even after Halloween.

And while this holiday is delightfully creepy, we also encourage everyone to utilize safe practices this season.

Make sure if you are taking your little one trick-or-treating, you go in groups and visit only neighborhoods you’re familiar with. This will ensure that you have a most enjoyable, safe and extra fun Halloween.
