It was a nice 73 degrees as the sun set on Court Avenue around 6:30 p.m., but the Sheriff’s Spooktacular was just getting started. Families were out early to get a jump on the evening. I was glad to see all the costumes and fun. Here is what it was like at the Spooktacular during the early evening last night on Court Avenue around the courthouse.
The Sevier County Sheriff’s Office was a central command post for candy.
The Sevierville Police Department had a good location for giving out treats.
Courthouse Donuts had a great view of everything from their location as they passed out treats.
Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Theater had a great location in front of the courthouse.
Seasons greetings on Court Avenue.
Local author, Missy Barrett, giving out treats.
Relay For Life helping inform and giving out treats at the Spooktacular.
Beautiful Star Wars characters.
The Fire Department was on the scene to deliver treats.
Lines were long, but people were happy, patient, and enjoying the evening out and about.
Nice table with the best Jack-0-lanterns.
It is always a good time to take a photo with the Dolly statue.
The kids’ slide was non-stop action! Conveniently located near the courtrooms.
You can really enjoy the creativity of costumes at the Spooktacular.
A photo op here for social media.
True to the theme, there are some spooky characters around to keep you on your guard.
Fire fighters in the holiday spirit.
This ‘character’ would occasionally growl and jump at passersby, adding to the fun.
The ‘haunted jail.’
Always glad to see the Shriners. They do such good work for children.
This family should have won for the best costumes. So creative.
The Pigeon Forge Police Department gave out doughnuts. I enjoyed mine last year!
Sheriff’s Dispatch table was well manned to give out treats.
These costumes were very good and kind of gave me the creeps. Very Halloween!
Loved these co-ordinated outfits.
Great table and slogan.
A man of many talents. This job is not easy!
My friend, Glenda, enjoyed being part of the Citizens Academy and highly recommends the experience. Looking cute and feline for Halloween!
A baby shark.
The sun was setting on Court Avenue and I had two more errands to run so I bid the Spooktacular farewell until next year. What fun and a massive event. Costumes, treats, music, and seeing lots of people that you know contribute to a nice evening with family downtown. We can thank the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office and emergency personnel who worked to make the Spooktacular happen. Thanks to local businesses who also joined the fun. It is a nice way to get out and about in Sevierville on a warm October evening.
