Congratulations Tristin O'Byrne
(Anoka High School Senior)
***Come take a selfie and #HalloweenWall ***
Each year, the south ramp wall of the walking tunnel under Main Street in Downtown Anoka, will be painted with a new Halloween theme for that year. It will be a focus for visitors that come to Anoka for all the Halloween events and will become a prime photo opportunity and will be hashtagged #HalloweenWall
How did this wall start? Years ago, this wall used to have a mural painted on it, I was told as we painted the "Windows of Time" Project in the tunnel, according to passers by. Then it was painted over a solid color for years. A few days before the ribbon cutting for "Windows of Time" I chose a graffiti artist, Sean, to help me paint a Halloween mural and surprise the kids for the ribbon cutting in August 2015.
