Live the Dream #33 - Halloween Boo in Downtown Boone

Downtown Boone zombiesEach year on All Hallow's Eve, costumed candy cravers can cascade through downtown Boone for an evening of sugar-loaded fun. The year's Downtown Boo was as decorative as previous years. Kids met at the downtown library for crafts and games, then paraded to the downtown area for 90 minutes of door-to-door hopping.

A popular destination is the Jones House, a landmark in downtown which this day was presided over by a princess. Among the revelers was Buzz Lightyear, a few witches, pirates and one darling Minnie Mouse.

Few areas have an thriving downtown. In the High Country, for one night to the year, there's an unliving downtown .... at least, there is when zombies are out.
