Halloween at Taos Plaza is an annual festival of munchkins who get decked out in impressive costumes.
On Oct. 31, Taos Plaza was closed off to traffic for “Trunk or Treat” — a well-organized event for which local businesses set up cars and booths from which they distributed candy to children.

It was a great way to have a safe and fun Halloween. There was a pirate ship that children could go into and climb upon, and a haunted house that had a long line of enthusiastic people waiting to go inside.

There were children who went as everything from Elvis Presley to Darth Vader to a jar of jam. There were also a fair share of princesses in the mix. There was a costume contest. I do not know how judges could choose winners from among the impressive array of colorful young characters in the crowd.

Local businesses showed equal enthusiasm with their costumes. State Farm employees dressed up as the Cone Heads from “Saturday Night Live.”
This event is yet another example of how the Taos community works together to make a holiday fun and festive.
