Nevada City Halloween 2016

Trick or Treating

Downtown Nevada City is a favorite spot for local trick or treaters, and Broad Street is filled with an endless stream of  little ghosts and goblins going from door to door to get their treats.   Houses are covered in spider webs and lights.  Trick or treaters are greeted by witches, warlocks, creepy sounds, and smoking cauldrons.  The Victorian architecture of the homes, and the old deciduous trees of Nevada City are the perfect backdrop for Halloween.
