The Washington Main Street Market held its monthly artisan’s market on Saturday, but with a special treat for the kids!

The market looked a little bit different as families came out to the Washington Pavilion with little ones dressed to impress for the Halloween-themed occasion. Kids went trick-or-treating at each vendor’s station while parents, grandparents and patrons shopped. The Washington Market organizer, Laura Wilson pulled the whole event together to make it a family-friendly market the kids would enjoy and had nachos and chili dogs for the kids. As visitors came in they could register their trick or treaters into a costume contest where judges were secretly placed throughout the vendors to determine who had the best costume of the night. There were so many amazing and creative costumes.

You could even catch the LSU game as it was streaming on the Pavilion stage. On the Main Street side of the pavilion you can see the progress being made to the steamboat mural, painted by Aubrey Doucet and Jerome Ford. The project was made possible through funding by the St. Landry Tourist Commission.

The Washington Main Street Market features one-of-a-kind vendors with homemade and handcrafted goods by local artisans.
