The witches were out Thursday night in downtown Augusta.

Augusta got into the Halloween spirit Thursday night as witches descended on the downtown businesses, which were decorated in high Halloween fashion. Merchants stayed open for the fourth annual Witches' Night Out and a grand time was had by all who attended. There was bargains galore, delicious food, a scary haunted house and the perfect time to meet up with gal pals.
