Halloween expected to be a family affair this year
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Halloween is right around the corner and one study shows more adult costumes will be sold than children’s costumes.
The National Retail Federation estimates nearly $7 billion will be spent this year on Halloween.
“He wants to be a ghost and me a ghost buster,” said Elisha Rhyne shopping with her son Jay at Spirit Halloween. In addition to costumes for the family they are also shopping for the family dog too. “He’s going to be a ghost too.”
It’s estimated around $330 million will be spent this year on pet costume.
The popular costumes this year include zombies and characters off the reality show Duck Dynasty.
