Castle Rock helped residents celebrate Halloween with a “fangtastic” celebration on Oct. 31.
The Fangtastic Festival invited families to come trick-or-treat in the town's Festival Park at 300 Second St.
From 1 to 4 p.m., young children decked out in costumes filled their bags with candy after visiting festival booths. They decorated pumpkins and got to chat with police officers from the Castle Rock Police Department.
Nixon Castel De Oro, 4, transformed a bright orange pumpkin into glittered in every color as he proudly wore his Captain America costume. It was the family's first year attending the event, said his mother, Brandy. Later in the day, the family had plans to go trick-or-treating in their neighborhood.
The Condon family also stopped at the festival before trick-or-treating, said Carrie Condon, who attended with her son, Gavin, 6, and 1-year-old daughter, Addison. Gavin excitedly showed off his The Flash costume as he collected sweets.
“Last year we came. We had fun,” Carrie said while holding Addison.
