Trick-or-Treating brings back so many good memories from being a kid! Even where I lived often you had to have a costume that you could put your winter jacket under it–because it was cold(maybe not Arctic cold–but cold all the same!) In the north things happen a bit differently…this year in Pang it happened from about 5-6pm… I had about 150 kids! (I was prepared for more so that’s good.) This year I had kids come on foot, by car, quad and snowmobile! A lot of the kids just had really good face paint/wigs/masks…or costumes that fit over their parkas and snow pants! I don’t blame them because it was around -8C or colder tonight!
After Trick-or-treating everyone gathers at the High School Gym… and there’s more fun and excitement! There’s a costume contest where judges decide on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd in each of the following categories: Best Costume, Worst Costume, Man dressed as Woman, Woman dressed as Man, Funniest Act, Celebrity Impersonations and Best Face Paintings! There were cash prizes given to the winners… It was a lot of fun to see everyone’s awesome costumes. (Earlier in the afternoon I went to Costume Contest for the Preschoolers! So cute to see all those babies, toddlers and preschoolers!)
I dressed up to hand out candy and to go watch the others strut/dance their stuff before the judges… maybe next year I’ll join them?
Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween! Don’t forget to brush your teeth…
