Nashville News Trick Or Treat Photos
One of our favorite parts of Halloween is getting pictures of kids (of all ages!) in their costumes. We will be at the Historical Society’s Haunted Depot on Friday, October 27.
On Saturday, October 28, we will be at The Nashville News office, located at 211 W. St. Louis St., Nashville, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Finally, we will be out at the Lions Club/Community Center Halloween Parade and Carnival on Sunday, October 29. We’re heading there with the purpose of getting pictures of the costume contest winners, but if you missed either of the other opportunities, let us know and we’ll get your photo too.
Space is limited, so we will not be rerunning multiple pictures of the same person. We will shoot pictures of anyone, of any age, who is in costume, but we will be prioritizing children in the paper. All of the photos will be put online though.
