On October 31, 2011 the halls were a scary site at Hobble Creek Elementary.  There were witches, goblins, monsters, pirates and much more rooming the halls.  The students and teachers had fun showing off their creative costumes to each other as well as the parents during the Halloween Parade.  The students and faculty marched down the halls and throughout the gym while parents and peers were watching the parade come by.  It was a great site.  But beware if you come to Hobble Creek, you might get nabbed by one of these creatures!
