Take a Stroll down Trick or Treat Street

Hello Friends!
My, your costumes are wonderful!
Are you ready to go trick or treating?
Well, grab your treat buckets, straighten those masks and lets take a stroll down
TRICK OR TREAT STREET!
Do you see those lights at the end of the street? Something is going on in the abandoned lot on the corner!
It looks as if someone has set up a Carnival ...not just any carnival....
it's a
CANDY CARNIVAL
It's your lucky day! Candy Carnivals are very rare and don't stay in one place very long. This Candy Carnival will be here for just three days....
Come one, Come all. Walk through the tented entrance into a
Sugar Dipped Wonderland.
Everything here is free for Trick or Treaters tonight!
Let's take a ride on the Candy Coated Ferris Wheel
Doesn't the midway look amazing - shall we try our hand at a game of skill?
The Pumpkin Pie Toss looks like a good bet...
.....how is your aim?
Oh look!
It's a sideshow curiosity,
there is quite a line of people over there.
shall we see what the attraction is?
From the depths of the Indian jungles ...
...the magical, the mysterious...
MYSTIC MARSHMALLOW
Look deeply into his eyes....and he will hypnotize...
you are getting hungry...you are getting very hungry
Snap out of it!
Here comes the next act..... A bevy of
Balancing bon bons
watch how they bounce and tumble - how do they keep that frosting on their heads?
Watch where you step, someone has spilled their popcorn...
What a shame, they looked like such
Sweet Kernels!
I feel a bit peckish, don't you?
This looks like a good place to fill up our treat buckets!
Look who is working behind the counter
TRICK OR TREAT!
Definitely Treats given here,
Candy Apple anyone?
What a Fresh character!
Nothing says CANDY CARNIVAL like some warm and fluffy
Candy Floss
Oh look, they have special colors for Halloween
It looks as if this Candy Floss might leave you with more than just sticky fingers...Yikes!
Are your treat buckets as full as mine? We still have to Trick or Treat down the rest of the street - leave room for more treats.
Perhaps if you come back you can pick up a few more goodies
(prizes for leaving comments/posts over the next three days)
Good Trick or Treaters are given surprises
Follow the instructions to qualify for prizes
Sept. 14th leave a comment on each blog to qualify for a prize from each artist
Sept.15th Mention Trick or Treat Street on your blog, with a link back to one of us, leave all three a comment about it, and you qualify for the days prizes.
Sept 16th Visit one last time and leave each of us a comment to qualify for yet another prize from each artist
Sept 17th One lucky Trick or Treater will have their name drawn(at random) from all from the comments, and will receive the GRAND PRIZE- an original art piece from each artist

*winners will be announced on each blog, each day*
**Check to see if your name is a WINNER, and email us to collect your prize**
sweetbfolkart@cox.net
You've come all this way, its a shame you can't stay...
but there are two other artists who want you to play.
They have prizes too and treats galore,
clink on a link to see what's in store!
Trick or treat with Happy Holidays
Trick or treat with Retro Rudolph's

Continue your journey down Trick or Treat Street
by visiting both of these artists!
