With near-cloudless blue skies and sweater-weather temperatures, all signs point to a spook-tacular Halloween evening for trick-or-treaters tonight, October 31.

Houses across the county got into the Halloween spirit early this year. This selection is along a short stretch of F Street in Salida.

Homeowners throughout Salida and Buena Vista can turn their porch lights on and get ready to greet little goblins and witches, astronauts and pirates, baby sharks and robots with nary a shiver tonight.

The range of Halloween costumes is as wide as the imagination. While you might think that witches and princesses, and pirates would dominate, not so.

 Fox 31 News in Denver looked up the most popular Halloween costumes in each state in the country. In Colorado, the most popular costume is Mortal Combat; a selection that may give some cause for concern. But according to Fox, “MMA fighter Cole Young seeks out Earth’s greatest champions in order to stand against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe.”

After more than two years of pandemic concerns, this is the first Halloween since 2019 in which trick-or-treaters might be fully-welcomed at the door.

Parents in other states, however, have been warned about dangerous drugs being slipped into candy, so the Centers for Disease Control has warned them to be sure to check the candy their children bring home before allowing them to eat any of it.
