Halloween Howl returns to downtown Zephyrhills
Halloween Howl returned to downtown Zephyrhills after a one-year postponement due to COVID-19 and Fifth Avenue was packed with costumed people of all ages.
All the Halloween Howl staples were part of the event like the haunted house, hayride, trick or treating, dozens of vendors, bounce houses and slides, entertainment and much more.
In one of the largest crowds in the event’s history that spans more than two decades, Halloween Howl was the local return to normalcy in Zephyrhills. A new feature to the event was a haunted tour.
“I am absolutely tickled. It is bigger than I imagined ,” said Main Street Director Faith Wilson. “I am so excited to see everyone here. This all for the community.
“We want to promote our small town. There is a lot to do here and a lot of fun to be had.”
Devin Alexander, the vice president of Main Street and the promotion chair for events, looked from the Eiland Bandstand and saw the reason he chooses to live. in Zephyrhills.
“I see Zephyrhills doing what we do best in supporting each other and having a good time,” Alexander. “This is why people move her and why I live here.
“Even though we are growing, we maintain that sense of a small town. Having this level of turnout at Halloween Howl speaks to the trend that we are getting back to normal.”
