Halloween was a howling good time

Public and private festivals dotted Golden Valley the weekend of Halloween. Golden Valley Baptist Church hosted its annual Fall Festival on Friday, complete with a Trunk-or-Treat car show, games and goodies. Here at the church festival, is Bounce masquerading as a clown on the hay rack. In the photo below, Don Rothra of Golden Valley entertains a group of friends and new acquaintances at a private party the evening before Halloween. Golden Valley is home to innumerable retired entertainers, and Rothra, a professional musician for decades, is one of them. Over the span of his career, he played with such renowned musical artists as Willie Nelson and Roy Clark.
