There’s a crispness in the air now as we move into Halloween weekend. There’s also a ton going on as this is arguably the busiest holiday that Denton sees. Heck, it spans two weekend, y'all. An interesting thing to note this year as that there appears to be a critical mass forming downtown of residents wanting to play and shop the shops downtown into the weekend evenings and businesses open for them to patronize. John Williams, owner of East Side and Oak Street Draft House, has organized an event dubbed "Trick or Treat Around the Square" with over 50 shops involved. We may even join 'em on the square's sidewalk, bucket of candy in hand, this Friday evening from about 6 until 8pm. We want to see all your Halloween shenanigans tagged with #WDDI so we can post them on Monday in What We Did.
