Lone Butte Halloween Trunk or Treat huge success

Fiona Grisswell: Lone Butte columnist

Trunk or Treat was a huge success this year. Assorted superheroes, mythical creatures, members of law enforcement and all manner of things that go bump in the night came out to munch on hot dogs and drink hot chocolate while collecting their bounty in candy. So much creativity and imagination on display!

Congratulations to C. Schneider for winning the best-decorated trunk display. Thank you to the Lone Butte-Horse Lake Community Association and volunteers for putting on this event. Special thanks to the Lone Butte Volunteer Fire Department for the awesome fireworks display at the end of the night.
