Happy Halloween…

 

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!)

These two photos are from the “Worst Costume” Category… it was the funniest to see! 

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…

  1. That sounds like so much fun, this year was my first without a Halloween and I have to say I found it pretty sad.
