Decatur's Callithumpian festival hits the fan this weekend, with all sorts of activities scheduled leading up to Halloween Night and the Callithumpian Parade.
The Halloween Healthfair was held at Adams Memorial Hospital this morning, and a new event is scheduled tonight: Haunted Decatur Wagon Tours.
There wasn't much real estate available on the floor of the largest room in Riverside Center on Thursday evening as 226 area students from kindergarten through fifth grade flocked to the 31st annual Callithumpian Festival poster-painting contest.
The event lasted two hours.
Many of the posters will be on display in Decatur business windows.
Winners will be announced later.
Adams Memorial Hospital will host an open house from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday in celebration of its Adams Medical Complex.
The new complex, which is located behind the Strickler Cancer Institute, will include Decatur Family Medicine with Dr. Crystal Jencks and Dr. Jessamine Hippensteel.
A news release said both physicians will be available during the open house for the public to meet. They specialize in family medicine and obstetrics care.
