Gray skies and threat of rain didn’t spook attendees away from enjoying Mount Prospect Academy's Halloween Family Fun Run, 5K, and food drive.
About 35 people and five dogs attended the event.
Participants brought enough non-perishable food donations to fill two milk crates. MPA donated the food to The Bridge House, a homeless shelter and veteran support center in Plymouth, NH.
Several attendees dressed up in Halloween costumes, and rain held off until after the run was complete.
“Everyone arrived with a positive attitude and great costumes," event organizer Allison Shenloogian said. "Fun was had by all who attended!”
The four-legged attendees -- named Penny, Hal, Jack, Maya, and Dash -- came with wagging tails and enjoyed lots of scratches and belly rubs.
“Thank you to all who donated to the Bridge House, and all who donated their time and effort on a Saturday morning,” Shenloogian said.
