Downtown Rutledge was overrun with ghouls, goblins, superheroes, and other beloved iconic characters during the city’s annual Spooky Fall Festival last Saturday.
Local residents and out-of-town visitors gathered in Rutledge’s “spooky” square for a day of magical family fun. On a perfect fall day, dozens of families celebrated in the downtown square while children showed off their creative costumes, played in the park, and feasted on hotdogs and candy.
The festival featured a costume contest, haunted hayride, an inflatable slide, a bouncy house, a trunk-or-treat, and refreshments.
The entire town square was decked out in lights, ribbons, pumpkins and spooky decorations. Families enjoyed the festive atmosphere and the opportunity for kids to have a safe Halloween party right in their hometown.
