Dozens of local businesses and agencies participated in the Trail of Treats in Sunday Salem. The Salem Public Library sponsored a costume contest. Due to the rain, organizers scrapped the original plan of holding the trunk and treat event and Halloween costume contest outside in Waterworth Memorial Park. Instead they opted to all set up within the confines of the Salem Community Center, explained city parks director Shane Franks.
