In addition to the The Star-Herald’s Annual Safety Parade on Halloween, there will also be a costume contest.
Both events are strictly for children 12 and under and will take place on the Historic Downtown Square. Trick or treating will be from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at participating merchants.
The costume contest will be at 4:30 p.m. at the gazebo by Tyler, King and Ryder.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the first place winners in the age categories 0-3, 4-6 and 7-12.
A runner up will also be chosen and will be awarded a Halloween gift.
“Each year, the safety parade brings such a large crowd of children to the Downtown area, we hope that they enjoy this additional activity,” Star-Herald General Manager Cindi Compton said.
Participants will be selected by a panel of judges and must be in full Halloween costume.
There is no fee to register to participate.
A registration form can be found in this week’s edition on The Star-Herald on page C4.
Participants can register for the event the day of the Safety Parade at the gazebo from 3:30-4 p.m.
