Riverfront Halloween Celebration

By Nicole Tull

Halloween was celebrated in Logansport on the riverfront with River City Fest and the Logansport Chamber of Commerce. “A Night Treat on Elm Street” was the theme for the evening. Booths were set up for trick-or-treaters to visit.

Hot dogs, popcorn, water, and candy were available for all to enjoy. The event had something for everyone: games to play, music for dancing, decorated pumpkins, and lots of varied costumes.

Kids that dressed up could enter the costume contest. Kinley Kinman, Brentlynn Straus and others were awarded for their superb skills for recreating their favorite character. While many adults portrayed great skill, only the children received accolades.

A pumpkin contest was also offered for kids showing off their painting or carving skills. Some of the winners for the pumpkins were Jolee Brittan for the carved pirate ship and Carter Wilkerson for the painted deer. Rep. Larry Bagley supported his community with a pumpkin advertising his office.

It was a great community effort. Thank you to all that participated from the Chambers members and River City Fest. Special thanks to Dairy Queen, Whataburger, Big Zach’s, and Joaquin Truck Stop for their donations.
