A spooky Halloween sidewalk festival was held on the eastside for a day of frightening fun.

Participants were asked to wear their favorite costume and visit local businesses and vendors along A. Philip Randolph Blvd for special deals and treats.  The ghoulish event was attended by families and children promoting their favorite Halloween characters. In addition, children played table games and smiled for the cameras. The day was complete with eastside residents praising the festival for its promotion of eastside businesses and residents that live in the area marked as an enterprise zone.
The urban and rural eastside area has long been in need of revitalization and their main initiative is to bring communities together through public and private partnerships. Stepping out into the airy breezy night, participants witnessed the rising of the Blue Moon which rose at 6:58 p.m. on Halloween night and for the first time since 1944.
