Prize packs will be awarded to the best costume in each category.
The haunted breakfast will be held after the parade in the Conference Center. The buffet includes green scrambled eggs, "mummy" sausages, pancakes with oozing toppings and other favorites. Tickets are $7 (adults) and $5 seniors/kids).
The "Monster Mash" offers various activities, including crafts, making monster masks, filling popcorn-glove hands, decorating Halloween cookies and much more. The trick-or-treat bash will offer "ghostly" chocolates, candies and toys to the "little monsters." DJ Boy will play Halloween music along with a host of family favorites in this highly anticipated graveyard splash.
