Photo special to Alachua County Today / Dorothy and all the characters from the "Wizard of Oz" were popular costumes at Alachua's Trick or Treat on Main Street


ALACHUA ‒ It was an evening of super heroes, pirates and princesses along Main Street, Alachua on Saturday night, Oct. 28.

But the stars of the evening were the characters out of the 1939 movie, “The Wizard of Oz,” which was also the theme for the annual Scarecrow Row displays. Between the trick-or-treat event and Scarecrow Row, lions, tin men, scarecrows, Dorothy and Toto took top billing with a supporting cast of good and bad witches and even flying monkeys.

Sponsored by the Alachua Chamber of Commerce, Trick-or-Treat on Main Street is a longtime annual event sponsored by the Alachua Chamber of Commerce and City of Alachua offering children a safe environment to enjoy Halloween festivities.

It is one of a series of events taking place in downtown Alachua during the fall season, along with the Alachua Main Street Fall Festival sponsored by the Alachua Business League and the Alachua Christmas Parade sponsored by the City of Alachua and the Alachua Chamber of Commerce.
