Halloween invades downtown Ennis this week

Mark Warde

October comes to a close in historic downtown with a big lineup of community events according to Ennis energizers Becky McCarty and Gina Rokas.
“Next Saturday has something for young and old, and it all starts in the morning,” said McCarty, the city’s Main Street coordinator. “October 31st is generally known for night-time activities, but we’re turning the lights on Halloween.”
Three events begin simultaneously at 8 a.m., all within a block of each other.
The annual Monster Mash 5K Dash, which includes a One Mile Fun Run, is sponsored by the YMCA of Ennis. Those interested in participating should contact Morgan McCarty at 214-415-7954 for further information.
While not mandetory, runners are welcome to accessorize their outfit for Halloween.
Meanwhile, throughout midtown from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., children are invited by merchants to a spirit of Ennis trick or treat. Rokas, tourism director, has extended a welcome to kids from surrounding towns to dress up and eat up the fun.
Two calendar dates are also on tap for Saturday. Signaling the end of their seven-month season downtown, the Ennis Farmers Market will set up their booths and offer their goods from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. The market will return next spring.
Daylight Savings Time comes to a close as well later that evening, when residents set their clocks back one hour.
McCarty, who partners with organizations to sponsor live music during the Farmers Market, has announced a local country group, Ennis’ own 2nd String Band, will perform from 10 a.m. til 12:30 p.m. at the corner of North Dallas and Knox streets.
The band consists of Darran Krajca, who provides vocals and rhythm, Blake Krajca on bass guitar, vocalist Kelsey Lynch, Glenn Skrivanek on the drums, T.J. Jurcik with rhythm and Dusty Mach. He is the lead guitarist and sings.
