The 2019 annual Downtown Milan Trick or Treat event brought out ghosts, goblins, robots, dinosaurs and host of other characters.
 So popular was the event, children and their parents were strung out from Tolan Square past the post office and down two street lengths on County Street.    Speaking of the event, Heather Sykes said she has been attending for five years.  She brought her five-year-old daughter, Avery, who scurried from table to table in Tolan Square getting candy.
 Businesses and organizations offered goodies and the Milan Baptist Church held a Trunk or Treat event in their parking lot before inviting youngsters inside for a no charge Harvest dinner of a hot dog plus a beverage and then gave out prizes.
 Employees from Victory Chevrolet Buick gave away pink hats and pink sunglasses.  Manning the table were Sean Johnson and his 12-year-old son, Sawyer, and Todd Paullus.  David Baldwin, president of Moving Milan Forward and city council candidate, greeted people in a silk suit that was peppered with orange pumpkins.
 Amanda McKinnley made a fire truck with cardboard boxes and her little one-year-old daughter, Taylor, wore Dalmatian jammies, as she sat in the firetruck.  Her three-year-old brother, Cole, was dressed as a firefighter.
 Every Halloween needs a princess.  Six-year-old Haley Betrus was portraying Disney’s Jasmine.
