Although the predicted rain held off, bone-chilling temperatures did not last Thursday, but that did not stop hundreds of costumed kiddos and their proud parents from enjoying Boo Bash in downtown Sealy for Halloween.
“I thought it was a great turnout and everybody seemed to have a good time,” said Lisa Caton of Blinn College.
The event is sponsored by The Sealy News and is co-sponsored by Blinn.
Sharon Golightly of Alan’s Barber Shop reported that 668 people went through the haunted house set up in the building behind Citizens State Bank. They went through at a rate of 4.46 people per minute.
Caton said Blinn was well prepared for the candy crush at Boo Bash.
“We had 2,000 pieces of candy for Blinn and we gave out all of it,” she said.
Despite temperatures that were in the 50s and dropping rapidly at sunset, downtown was filled with children and families enjoying the festivities. More than 30 vendors provided treats and games for youngsters to enjoy. There were costume contests for children in elementary school and junior high and the Sealy Chamber of Commerce had kids playing musical chairs all evening.
