Westland High School was transformed into a place of magic and mischief as hundreds of costumed children, adults and canines gathered to participate in the annual Trick-or-Trick Trail presented by local businesses and the Prairie Township Community Center. Among the masses partaking in the festivities on Oct. 23 were members of the Central Ohio Ghostbusters who were on hand to make sure ghouls and goblins minded their manners. Pictured from left to right are Jamie Knapp, Theresa Knapp, David Smith, Andrew Terrell and Stacy Terrell. The group of professional paranormal investigators and eliminators hail from the Columbus and Galloway areas.

Doug Orahood, aka ‘Doug the Pug,’ gave out lots of high-paws at the event. He said he likes wearing this costume because it is easy to walk and talk in.
