Halloween came early in the Town of Herndon as small children dressed as Spider-man, Wonder Woman, fairy princesses, pirates, witches and more descended upon the Herndon Community Center for an evening of ghoulish games, music, arts, moon bounce jumping and a special show on Friday. Oct. 26.
Holly Popple, performing arts special events supervisor at Herndon Parks and Recreation, reported that more than 100 children signed up for a "Spooktacular time."
Shamika Barbour of Herndon brought her daughter Naima, 4, and son Omari, 1 1/2. "They love Halloween and dress up even more," said Barbour.
Asked what the most popular event was, Popple said, "The duck game was a big hit, and new this year, we featured a life-size puppet musical review called, "A Costume Party!"
