Children and adults dressed up in a variety of clever Halloween costumes for trick-or-treating in the Cine lobby, scary Okee-Karaoke, face painting, an Oogie Boogie photo wall and costume contests during the October 30th event.

The climax of the evening came when the Halloween celebrators gathered in the Cine Theatre, decorated with giant spiders and other appropriate items, for a special movie.

They were entertained by Disney’s “Nightmare Before Christmas Sing and Scream Movie” while they enjoyed popcorn and soft drinks.

Justin Bartlett, the new Director of the Magnolia Civic Center, went all out to stage one of the more successful family events in recent memory in New Albany.

The entire civic center – the Cine Theatre, the lobby and conference room – was extensively decorated with spider webs, ghosts and goblins, and other appropriate Halloween objects and graphics.
