The Lafayette County Fire Department handed out candy for Halloween.

MAYO — Lafayette County residents filled the streets and parking lots of Mayo with goodies for trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.

The strip down Main Street in Mayo, from the courthouse all the way down to the industrial park, was filled with trucks, cars, UTV’s and pull-behind trailers as well as pedestrians galore for Halloween.

There were buckets full of candy that was handed out between the downtown area and the Lafayette County Fire Department.

Buckets were filled, costumes worn by children and adults ran up and down Main Street, as well as carloads, and even trailers with benches filled with people occupying them.

Families from all over Lafayette County came to downtown Mayo to celebrate.

Unfortunately, the rain began to pour earlier in the evening as the sun went down, which brought more traffic to the Lafayette County Fire Department, which had been open with decorations to celebrate and hand out candy all throughout the evening. Fog machines, caution tape and flashing strobe lights lit up the front of the fire department, which easily grasped the attention of onlookers.
