Covington, VA – Several area events took place over the weekend that brought lots of young kids and kids at heart out in celebration of Halloween. Pumpkins in the Park was held at the Jackson River Sports Complex in Covington sponsored by the Covington Parks and Rec that included a field of pumpkins for children to choose from for decorating,  as well as a trunk or treat that was sponsored by Kars Unlimited. In Low Moor, at the Alleghany Highlands YMCA there was a Halloween Spooktacular event held as well along with a trunk or treat with outdoor games and prizes. There was also a costume contest and a drive-in movie with popcorn. All of the events were family oriented, kid friendly free events. 

In sports, Parry McCluer beat the Cougars 35 to 6 in a shortened game due to Covington injuries and the Cougar’s not being able to meet the 18 player rule. Carroll County beat the Mountaineers 31 to 27 in a tightly contested game. The Cougars are at home this week to host EastMont and the Mountaineers are on the road to take on Floyd County.
