It was the good guys vs. the bad guys. Super heroes vs. super villains. Princesses and princes vs. ghouls and goblins.

Halloween in Greer Station was the place to be Tuesday night as a record turnout of children forced Trade Street to be closed and traffic around downtown come to a crawl.

Storeowners loaded up with tens of pounds of candy but it wasn’t quite enough for some.

Greer police was confidently passing out candy expecting the fire department to come along with reinforcements at a designated time. There was one minor glitch in that plan, the fire department was on a call and didn’t make it.

Storeowners went to social media on Monday searching for stores selling candy in bulk. Their edict to the staff shopping: “Whatever we do, we don’t want to run out of candy.”

Storefronts were decorated for a contest and Carolina Treasures at the Depot created a haunting scene.

Movies were shown on the big screen and dancers, dressed in frightening costumes and unflattering makeup, entertained. There was something for the adults, too – a ghost tour around downtown.

Best of all, children didn’t report any storeowners closing their doors early.
