The streets of Dillon were then transformed for Fall Fest. Trick or Treaters gathered in mass to walk up and down Idaho street and adjacent streets in search of candy and prizes. Businesses handed out goodies as participants took turns playing carnival like games. The library was transformed into a haunted house and clicked as people dared to venture through the doors. At the end of the day they recorded 696 clicks. The Metlen Hotel was a place for the brave to venture into as well as they hosted a haunted tour. DRM Motors parking lot and cars were transformed into a trunk or treat for those needing even more candy. Later in the evening the Dillon Montana Community Foundation hosted a 21 and older ladies night ride. Ladies dressed in their finest most witchiest costume and flew throughout the town. The Old Depot Theater hosted the movie Hocus Pocus 2.

The Witches Brigade will meet at the depot Park at 6 P.M. all ages and gender are welcome. Also don't forget The Beaverhead Maze and Pumpkin Patch is holding a haunted maze.
