Participating businesses will have candy and special treats for the children. Look for the stores and offices with a picture of a pumpkin on their windows. Maps will be available at the police department, Justin Potter Library, Chamber of Commerce and other locations to show parents which businesses will be taking part in the event.
A Halloween costume contest will be held again this year for children up to pre-school age at 10:00 am at the Evin's Park open stage. Another costume contest for those up to age twelve will be at 4:00 p.m. Participants need to register by 9:45 am and 3:45 pm. In case of rain the contests will be held upstairs inside of City Hall.
For those planning to enter the contest, there will be winners in different categories. The categories will be scariest, funniest, most creative, and best overall.
There will also be a Chamber Costume Contest to the downtown business employee's. Any business wishing to enter this contest will need to contact the Chamber of Commerce at 597-4163 and Suzanne Williams will visit each business throughout the day and take pictures of the participants and pick a winner.
