POINT PLEASANT — The tradition of the Point Pleasant Halloween Block Party continued on Thursday evening with Main Street packed with ghosts, goblins and even Jack Skellington.

Visitors to the party were treated to free games, candy, hot dogs, popcorn, a trip through the haunted maze called Morbid Manor, costume contests, live music from Blue Moves and the movie “Hocus Pocus.”

This year’s block party was under the auspices of the “Get to the Point” community group, following the retirement last year of Denise Scarberry, who headed the event for 20 years. However, Scarberry was still on hand Thursday night, helping to serve up hot dogs. Dustin Morrison served as this year’s block party chairman with countless organizations, volunteers and businesses donating to the event to keep it free, and safe, for all.

This year’s party was moved to Main Street to allow for more room to grow and accomodate all who made the trek.
