The first Halloween Stroll and Trunk or Treat Car Show took place this afternoon in downtown Evansville.
Hundreds of children and adults dressed in their favorite costumes as they cheat or seek treatment on the main street.
Dozens of cars, old and new, lined the street. Each car was entered into a contest ranging from best Chevrolet, best Ford and best in show.
Event organizers hope the success of this year’s event will pave the way for making it an annual Halloween party.
“We wanted to do this last year and made the decision not to go ahead. We’re really happy to do it this year. I think we’re going to expect a very busy trick-or-treat season and I think we’re ‘We’re going to have a really festive holiday season,’ said Josh Armstrong, president of the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District.
Shop owners and car owners handed out candy throughout the four-hour event.
Several DJs and food trucks were also scattered around Main Street.
In December, downtown Evansville will host its Christmas event. The public is then encouraged to go out.
