A scary good time

Hundreds of kids in costume flew, pranced, staggered and skipped to downtown Boone on Thursday for the annual Boone Boo celebration.

King Street merchants opened their doors to the sweet-toothed revelers for trick-or-treating following an afternoon of crafts and activities as the Watauga County Library.

The sugar-rush enablers included Bob Snead, owner of Dancing Moon, who dressed as a wizard for the 15th year to greet his guests.

"I'm really a wizard," Snead said. "I just thought I'd stand out today and give out candy."

Even babies and pets got into the spirit, clad in costumes ranging from sweet to frightful.
