Superheroes fill the streets of Rexburg

Rexburg’s annual Halloween party held on Friday, Oct. 28, shut the whole street down in Hemming Village. The event welcomed many members of the community from parents and children to college students and more.

The theme of the party was Superheroes at Hocus Pocus. Many superheroes such as The Flash, Scarlet Witch and Wonder Woman made appearances. There were also many local superheroes such as the fire department, police officers and veterans.

The fire department brought their fire truck and extended the ladder for people to look at and take pictures. The police officers brought their patrol cars and turned their lights on.

Hemming Village brought in the BYU-Idaho rock climbing wall. They also had three horse-drawn wagons for anyone who wanted to enjoy a hayride.

Ezra Westover, a BYU-I sophomore studying psychology, was asked to help keep traffic out and allow the wagon onto the street after the hayride was over.

“I think these little kids are hilarious and it’s cute seeing their little costumes,” Westover said. “It’s cool to interact with people and have a good time.”

Children who attended came dressed up and ready to trick-or-treat to each of the superheroes and some of the other clothing and food shops located in Hemming Village.

There were local traveling food vendors including Sugared Moose Mini Donuts, Jimmy John’s, The Corndog Company and Simply Soiree.

One of the highlights of the night was the singing Sanderson Sisters: Winifred, Sarah and Mary.

“We are celebrating Halloween with our big Hocus Pocus event,” said Winifred Sanderson.

“And eating children,” continued Mary Sanderson.

“And putting dances and spells on people,” concluded Sarah Sanderson.

Each year Hemming Village has the Sanderson Sisters there to perform and pose for pictures.

The theme for next year’s event has not yet been determined, but more information can be found on the Hemming Village Facebook page around the holiday each year.
