Halloween has evolved a lot over the years, but its roots in mischief are alive and well. That’s why more parents, especially those with young children, flock to sanctioned events for a safer trick or treating experience over the traditional door-to-door approach. “We don’t go door-to-door. We do the senior center and fire station every year,” Darlene Sperry, a Mat-Su parent, said at the annual Palmer Volunteer Fire Association Annual Autumn Harvest and Open House event. The fire association’s event changes locations each year. This year, Palmer firefighters parked their big, red trucks next to the Palmer Train Depot. Inside the depot, scores of families meandered from booth to booth for candy, games and photo opportunities with the likes of Sparky the Fire Dog and Smokey the Bear. Admission was completely free for this event.
