What fun it was to watch this beautiful little mountain towns’ Main Street come alive with goblins of all ages and sizes wearing all sorts of very creative, beautiful and scary attire. The street was lined with Halloween decorated vehicles (Trunk or Treat), businesses, churches and homes just waiting to greet and fill up the goblins bags with all kinds of goodies.

What a great way to spend Halloween, joining the goblins that were accompanied by moms & dads, brothers & sisters, grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles or friends, or both. In other words this was a family, neighbor, friend get-together and as Karon Christenson Banta (the event coordinator) says: “It is safe and fun, it is ‘Our Community and Our Families’.

Six years ago Banta had this idea of having a special and safe event for the kids and community on Halloween. She thought that getting together with Terry Maybrey, the Rye Town Mayor at that time, and discussing some options with him would be a good start and the brainstorming began. They then brought Natalie Lepley, owner of the ‘Main Street Boutique’ and Marty Rahl who lives on Rye Main Street into the planning, along with Karon’s good friend Holly Tittel. That was the birth of ‘Halloween Town’ on the Main Street of Rye, Colorado. The event has grown and grown very rapidly.
