Richmond’s annual Halloween Hoedown event was held on October 26, 2017 in downtown Richmond. The annual event draws thousands across the city and surrounding areas for a night of candy and activities.
This year’s event was a huge success with candy lines forming well before the start time, and an hour and a half into the event was still the length of the event area. I did note that it appeared less vendors were set up this year compared to years before.
The kids had fun and the businesses showed community support all while getting some free advertising. An all in all wholesome event. The only downside is that unless the organizers come up with a better system of line control, to help prevent people circumventing the line altogether, we can all expect long wait times again next year.
