ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Downtown Enterprise hosted it’s own outdoor costume contest to celebrate Halloween, along with a blood drive and a Fifth Saturday celebration for it’s businesses.
The contest was for children 12 and under and Main Street got in on the fun, with games and decorations outside local shops and businesses. All keeping COVID-19 precautions and protocols in mind.
“We are very excited to host this event, you know, we’re taking all the precautions, it’s outside, open air,” Main Street Director Cassidi Kendrick said. “And we just wanted to give the kids something fun to do for Halloween. So we’ve got our costume contest going on, we’ve got some candy to pass out, you know everything is individually wrapped.”
Fifth Saturday only happens if there is a fifth Saturday during a month, which also just so happened to be Halloween.
Many of the local businesses were having door deals and celebrating the spooky spirit.
“Customers are loving coming out,” Boll Weevil Soap Company Owner Brad Wester said. “And they’ve been very gracious about coming in, we’re monitoring the size of groups as they come into the store.”
“We are wearing our mask, we’re asking our customers to wear their masks and people have been great about it and because of that we’ve really been able to open things up,” Wester said.
The city even had the life south blood truck out to help receive blood donations and reward donors with a pint of ice cream.
It was a day to be had by all, but especially the kids.
