Drivers just have to pull up and roll down their windows to get their treats.


MADILL

SHERMAN

The Sherman Police Department hosts its annual Fright Fest on Tuesday evening, a tradition for 17 years. It gives children a safe place to trick-or-treat.

Even though there's a chance of rain, the event will still be outside at the Municipal Grounds across from Bearcat Stadium. Admission is free.

"We haven't made a call yet," said Sherman police spokesman Sgt. D.M. Hampton. "From what I see, it's going to be scattered showers, so we're just going to kind of -- no pun intended -- 'weather' through it."

Fright Fest usually brings in anywhere from 1,500 hundred to 3,000 trick-or-treaters.
