LAKE PLACID (AP) - New York's Olympic village has a new moniker - the Number One Best Town for Halloween.
The honor was bestowed on Lake Placid by Travel and Leisure Magazine in its October online edition.
Among the attractions cited by the magazine were the 5K Zombie Walk, the Trek-n-Treat pub crawl, and the annual staging of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" at Lake Placid Center for the Arts.

The longtime Main Street Trick-or-Treat for youngsters on Halloween also was mentioned by the national travel magazine.
Kim Reilly of the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism, who also oversees marketing communications, says it's the first time she remembers fielding an inquiry about Halloween. Reilly says the honor is nice because it's outside the marketing message her office strives to deliver.
