Downtown Plymouth Gears Up for Pumpkin Palooza

Games, candy, Halloween scares to greet downtown visitors on Sunday.

About 1,000 zombies, monsters, clowns and princesses are expected to descend upon downtown Plymouth on Sunday to feast on candy provided by local businesses.

The sweet-toothed visitors, of course, are costumed families that Teri Fry from the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce expects downtown between noon and 3 p.m. Sunday for the second year of Pumpkin Palooza.

The event features games, candy, entertainment and costume contests for both children and pets, Fry said.

The event, aimed at providing families a safe place to trick-or-treat at local businesses, premiered last year and was an immediate success, Fry said.

"We had great turnout last year," Fry said. She said she expects crowds to grow as the event enters its second year, projecting about 1,000 children trick-or-treating downtown Sunday.
