WILMINGTON ISLAND, Ga. – The Halloween crowds were not as large in a popular Wilmington Island neighborhood this year and that’s just what neighbors wanted to keep everyone safe.
Mountains of storm debris still cover the streets of Old Towne. The homeowners association posted on social media that they would turn people away due to the unsafe conditions on the street.
That didn’t prove to be necessary Monday night.
One neighbor says they were in the right to protect the neighborhood and anyone who came in it.
“I think they were right in saying it, because when they said things really did look a lot worse and they’re protecting us,” Elizabeth Mulligan, an Old Towne homeowner, said. “They’re our board that looks out for the neighbors and visitors.”
Visitors parked at a park near the entrance and some even dropped people off so they could walk into the neighborhood and still enjoy the holiday.
