Helper City’s Main Street got spooky on Friday evening as October’s First Friday was hosted. This month, the theme focused largely on zombies and was entitled “Helper Halloween Town.”
Alongside the usual vendors, gallery stroll and live music, there was also a raffle hosted for Kenzlee Cook, the Pinnacle High School student art show, a zombie 5K in conjunction with Pinnacle High, a zombie contest and more. Young ones that wished to create a zombiefied Barbie doll were welcomed into Three Little Llamas while others that wished to be zombiefied themselves visited Canvas Alchemy to be painted by Janae Hull.
The most gruesome zombie contest saw Hull in first place, winning $125. Becky Columbia came in second and was awarded $100. In the children’s category, Rhyatt Peet came in first and won $50 while Lennon Candelaria was second and was given $25.
November’s First Friday is slated to take place on Nov. 1 beginning promptly at 6 p.m. and will have a Dia de Los Muertos theme.
