PHOTO GALLERY: Boone Boo: Halloween in the Appalachian town

Boone celebrated Halloween by hosting Boone Boo downtown Sunday, Oct. 31. Local sites were decorated to invite participation from community members. 
With an effort to make Boone Boo family-friendly, several activities were set up for kids, like bouncy houses, slides, haunted tunnels, and plenty of candy. 
Downtown King Street was closed off from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., allowing space for easy, safe access for families and children enjoying the event.
Throughout King Street, creative costumes were paraded to celebrate the event from both young and old party-goers.
