Crowds of Power Rangers, princesses, Ninja Turtles, cows and others donning costumes filled downtown Salisbury Saturday during a Halloween fun fest.

Attendees participated in games and worked their way through a maze of hay as part of the planned activities during the fun fest.

The event drew large crowds of people throughout the entire event on Saturday afternoon.

The fun fest was organized by Salisbury’s Parks and Recreation Department. Activities were set up in a large parking lot next to the Rowan Public Library Headquarters.
