The Licking City Hall was standing-room-only Wed. night, as costumed participants squeezed in out of the rain to compete for prizes. The rainy, cold weather did not dampen the spirits of the attendees as they made their rounds of downtown Licking in search of treats. My Little Cupcake was decorated as the house from Hansel and Gretel and treats were handed out in costume. The staff and residents at Hickory Manor were prepared for the trick-or-treaters with games and candy. The evening did wrap up early, with most people leaving for home by 7 p.m. as the intensity of the rain increased and the temperature dropped.
