Kayden Hinson, 5, kept a smile on her pink lips as she waited for her family to catch up on Yampa Avenue.
The best parts about Halloween, Hinson said, were getting to wear her grandmother’s lipstick and her mother’s eye shadow. The candy is great, too, she said.
The only disappointment is not taking her pony, Traveler, along with her trick-or-treating. He would have been the perfect accessory to her rodeo princess costume.
Hinson was one of hundreds of local children, along with their families, who participated in the annual Trick-or-Treat Street event on Monday in downtown Craig. Business at Centennial Mall and at other locations in Craig also gave away treats.
Children and adults alike got into the spirit with costumes ranging from skeletons and vampires to M&Ms and princesses.
Haven Carr, 3, dressed as the popular lion Simba from “The Lion King.” His father, Daniel Carr, was dressed as the “bacon patrol” and said he was taking his son for his first trick-or-treat experience.
“He’s digging it,” Daniel said. “I think he likes seeing everyone dressed up.”
