Trick or Treat in Falmouth Village was celebrated in grand fashion with the 17th annual Trick or Treat stroll along Main Street on Saturday October 25th. Hundreds of youngsters and their parents came dressed for the occasions in costumes ranging from policemen and fireman to goblins, witches and beloved characters like Elsa of Frozen. We had parents dressed as superheros and sports figures as they escorted their little ones along the street. Restaurants and Retail shops alike offered up goodies to the trick or treaters.
Patches the firedog and Olivia as red riding hood led the parade down Main Street in Falmouth Village.
Eight Cousins Bookstore had Ladybug Girl and Sara the good witch to hand out fun pencils for their treat.
