Halloween Costume Contest and Downtown Trick or Treating

Saturday, October 27, 2018

On Saturday, October 27th Edwardsville Parks Department and the Edwardsville Lion’s Club will host a children’s costume contest at the City Park Bandstand immediately followed by trick-or-treating in downtown Edwardsville. Costumed children should arrive at the park with their parents by 11:30 a.m. to register or check in for the event. Participants will be grouped in separate age categories: baby to 3 years old, 4-6 years old, 7-9 years old, 10-12 years old and a special category for group costumes. The Edwardsville Lion’s Club will begin judging at noon. Prizes donated by GCS Credit Union will be awarded after each age category has been presented. Entertainment at City Park, prior to the contest’s start time, includes the SIUE Suzuki Strings playing Halloween-ish music starting at 11:00 a.m. and the Edwardsville Walgreens Store will be taking pictures of each participant with a fall background. Parents can pick up one free copy of the picture at Walgreens after the event.
