About 700 costumed children and their parents spent Monday evening at the Destin Community Center enjoying the city's Fall Festival.

The event featured carnival-style games with a spooky twist, face painting, a bouncy house, a pumpkin carving contest, a cake walk and a costume contest for children up to age 12.

Community volunteers, including about 40 teens from Destin Middle School and Fort Walton Beach High School, helped staff the booths and keep the fun going.
