Pass Christian holds a "Howl-aween" fun run

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) -

Halloween means one thing for many people, candy. This holiday brings a lot of sweet treats with its festivities.

Pass Christian hosted a fun run, hoping to balance out all the unhealthy snacks with a little exercise and fun.

Runners took their marks to race just more than more than 1 mile around downtown Pass Christian. It was the first year they've held this "Howl-aween" run.

Many dressed up for the occasion. Proceeds went to benefit Pass Christian Main Street.

"We want to get people out, you know doing something healthy and fun with friends and family for the holiday. So we're just trying to do anything we can to get people here to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy being in Pass Christian," said event coordinator Evelina Burnett.

Pass Christian will also be hosting a fun run for Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter.
