Little ghosts stalk Fall Festival

October 28, 2002

Albany- The soggy weather didn't stop Spiderman or these excited insects from enjoying the 30th YMCA fall festival. Its full of carnival like food and games geared for the littlest spooks.

"Its an event for kids to come out with their families and just enjoy this wonderful time of the year when the seasons are changing. It's a little bit cooler outside, and we have volunteers come and just make a night of fun and games for everybody ," says YMCA's Anna Lee O'neil.

The festival is a great deal for parents like Linda Snow, she has four costumed kids. "You get more use out of the costumes you buy, so its good to have more than one thing to go to ," says Snow.

Kids moon-walked and ring-tossed to win fun prizes and of course candy.

Dougherty County Police even fingerprinted the galloping ghosts, but this evidence will be used to keep them safe. Captain Kevin Sproul says the prints can help in an investigation if the children are missing.

The candy-filled holiday may be days away, but these little ghouls aren't wasting anytime getting into the spirit.

All the proceeds from the Fall festival will go to the YMCA youth programs.
