The Downey Legend

Marching band student, Sofia Hammond, 11, plans to give trick or treating around the neighborhood with her friends this year for Halloween. Although Hammond doesnt like horror movies, she will gladly watch them if her friends want to. Before Halloweens main event starts, Hammond has fun things to do for her and her friends like bobbing for apples and carving pumpkins. I enjoy the holiday for the candy and nothing else, she stated. Because I am a scaredy cat.
