Fall Festival at Monterey

Monterey Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Association conjured up a good time for the community when it hosted its annual Fall Festival on Oct. 22. For close to two hours, dozens of little ghouls and goblins played games, scored free candy, and burned off some of their sugar-induced energy by accessing the haunted playground. Among the night’s attendees taking part in the latter activity was Savannah Lines, a 9-year-old vampiress who wanted to hone her climbing skills. While legend has it that vampires can scale buildings intrinsically, the hidden truth is they have to practice from time-to-time.
