Clinton’s Scare on the Square was, as always, a big event. This year the Haunted House was in the Fire Station, and local businesses, churches and clubs set up around the square and onto Main Street to hand out treats to the costumed throng.

The Halloween event was run on Tuesday this year, a day before Halloween’s calendar date, after Clinton City Council passed an ordinance moving Halloween to Oct. 30. This was done so that the event would not interfere with the usual Wednesday night church events throughout the county.

The events started officially at 5 p.m., but ran well into the evening, with attendees from throughout the region.
