Hayfield had another successful Halloween Carnival. Event organizers estimate that over two hundred children joined in on the fun at the Hayfield fire hall on Halloween night, Thursday. Many more attended the haunted house that took place on Friday and Saturday night as well.
The Halloween Carnival is a 45 year tradition in Hayfield and has had been supported and sponsored by various businesses and organizations over the years. The Hayfield Chamber of Commerce, Fire Department, Ambulance Service and Citizen's State Bank of Hayfield are the sponsors this year.
The Boy Scouts, Country Corner Pre-School, the Junior Class, the high school bowling team and the Hayfield Library all had volunteers working at different booths throughout the evening. All the groups will share the proceeds from the carnival and the haunted house, which was sponsored by the fire department and ambulance service.
Last year's carnival raised $2,300 which was split between the seven organizations that had booths.
This year the volunteer fire fighter spook house raised roughly $1,500 and had 525 people go through. The carnival brought in about $825.
On Saturday the Chamber sponsored a costume contest and trick or treaters visited businesses in town. The costume contest winners will be in next week's paper.
