Marion County is Full of Treats (and Maybe a Few Tricks) This Halloween
Can you imagine Halloween with no trick-or-treating? Well that’s what happened during World War II when sugar had to be rationed.
Oh, how times have changed! Today, Americans spend an estimated $6 billion annually on Halloween, making it the nation’s second-largest commercial holiday.
Well, there is certainly no shortage of sugary-treats in Marion County this Halloween. Check out some of the fun activities planned throughout the area.
