Within minutes of a county-wide tornado watch being issued and a downpour complete with thunder and lightning, the sky cleared, the sun came out and Mother Nature made way for a successful Boo Bash in downtown Sealy.
The 12th annual event, held Halloween night, offered an opportunity for kids and their parents to gather candy, eat from food trucks, play games, visit a haunted house and participate in a costume contest.
Students with Sealy High School’s Interact Club who hosted the costume contest included Javier Alvarez, Jasmine Ramirez, Robert Avilez, Ryley Schack, Bresly Morales and Carolos Godoy. The Interact Club is sponsored by teacher Melissa Simms.
While there was some confusion earlier in the day as to whether the event had been canceled, it went on without a hitch as organizers with The Sealy News and Sealy Main Street program worked together to pull it off.
“It gets bigger every year,” said resident Susan Hartmann. “[It was] awesome!”
Resident Cynthia Kelly noted the many smiling faces handing out candy to the young trick-or-treaters.
“Thank you to all the wonderful people who braved the rain,” she said.
