TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Wednesday was another Halloween and another night of costumes, candy and fun.
And for the folks in North Mississippi, some towns put together events for families to safely trick or treat.
In Fulton, the majority of downtown was blocked off for families to trick or treat.
We asked some children what their favorite thing about trick or treating was?
"Candy! And gum, I want some gum," said Kristen and Tristen Ray.
The streets were lined with thousands of people going from business to business for treats and candy.
Another event was happening in Tupelo, and one witch was heading that way after Fulton.
"Yeah, I'm going to the church....We're having a trunk or treat," said another trick or treater.
In Tupelo, three churches came together to give families a safe place to trick or treat.
"Tonight is our first block party trunk or treat. This is done in conjunction with First Methodist, First Presbyterian and All Saints. We got together to have a fun time for the children for Halloween," said Kristen Partin of First United Methodist Church.
"There's like bouncies, and you get to get candy in trunks, and there are some witches and glow sticks, and a lot of the trunks have spiders and spider webs and dolls and all that stuff," said one trick or treater.
Fulton Mayor Paul Walker says the turnout in Fulton was beyond expectations.
And for the trunk or treat in Tupelo, it was no different.
"The turnout is way beyond our expectations. We could not have asked for a better night weatherwise. Thank you to whoever put that request in. We have lots of great people, and everyone I've talked to has had a great time," said Partin.
Both events were free, and organizers have already started planning for next year's festivities.
