LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Riehle Plaza turned into Halloweentown Saturday night to raise awareness of elder abuse.
It was the second for year for the ghoulish event, which offered a costume contest, Zombie Run and more.
Halloweentown took place from 4-8 p.m.
Organizer Julie Pope said it takes six to eight months to plan the event. She said downtown Lafayette is the perfect area to host such a spooktacular party.
“We really want to try and work to make downtown Lafayette a destination spot for Halloweentown,” Pope said. “This is where it starts, and it goes through the whole city. We’re very fortunate to have a great downtown like we do.”
The event was free and open to the public.
Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski was one of several costume judges who gave out prizes.
