PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — Locals donned their costumes and came out to Downtown Panama City for a fun trick or treating event.

Despite the breezy night, hundreds of residents filled the sidewalks of Harrison Avenue as businesses in the downtown area handed out candy to celebrate Halloween night.

Starting at 6 pm, Harrison Ave. past south of 6th street was blocked off for a safe experience. A downtown business owner said they loved seeing all the activity.

“It’s just great to see people, the streets filled. It’s great to see families and kids. That’s what we want to see in downtown is just family and kids,” noted Greg Snow, The Little Mustard Seed owner.

Snow also emphasized how happy they were to be able to take part in the trick or treating as they were closed down last year due to the storm.

“It’s great, the city helped us out, the police department was great. We just had a great team working together to put this free event on downtown,” said Snow.
