There will be a contest for best costumes, with prizes being awarded by judges, Brian and Diane Stuart. Loads of snacks including the puking pumpkin – spewing guacamole – gross, great, and delicious. Creepy yummy treats and spooky drinks. Everyone welcome, and it’s free! (Thank you to Lily Bragge for this contribution and for encouraging a HSB post.)
Saturday – October 29, 2016 at 10am
Head to the Mineral Point Opera House for this annual event sponsored by the Mineral Point Kiwanis and MP Public Library. Guests will receive a ballot to vote for the Spookiest, Most Creative, Funniest, Cutest, and Best Overall Costumes as the children make their way across the Opera House stage. Following the costume parade, a fun and short (30-minute) movie will be shown. Costume winners will then be announced and the children will be invited to Library Park which will be transformed into a colorful pumpkin patch thanks to the Mineral Point Key Club. Each child will be allowed to take home a little painted pumpkin.
