Halloween season is underway in Saline.

About 325 people visited the Saline Rec Center for the sold-out Boo Bash.

The kids, and even moms and dads in some cases, were decked out in their Halloween costumes. They received treats on the second floor of the Rec Center from staff and from local businesses.

Then they returned to the first floor for a pizza dinner and dancing to music spun by the father and son team from Prime Tyme Entertainment.

Thursday, events were held in the schools.

The recent events are just the first of several Halloween events for local families.
