Halloween tradition cancelled

Maiden says “no” more to congested streets and road closes on Halloween.
This year the town is not closing down the street and the two area churches famous for festivities are opting to not participate in the annual event as well.

“We really enjoy Halloween, it was just getting so big,” said Maiden Town Council Member Fore Rembert. “Last year we had 1,500 trick-or-treaters, and there was some expense to that.”

While Rembert is one of many Maiden residents who live on East Main Street, he said that from year to year they have never had a problem. Rembert said its always been great for the kids and only lasts a couple hours and then its done.
