I hope you have started planning your costumes! This year presents an interesting challenge to incorporate a mask into your costume. Between sips and bites, masks must be worn at all times. There will likely be a lot of nurses/doctors, but the sky is the limit. Painting the face and the mask together is a great idea. A thief, mummy, cowboy or a full face mask are also options.

It is WAY more fun if everyone participates, so just plan on going all out. There will lots of competition to win a blown glass pumpkin by local glass artist Jeremie Draper. 2nd Prize is a blown glass wine stopper also by local glass artist Jeremie Draper. Everyone can vote by ballot for their favorite costume.
