There are plenty of opportunities for little ghosts, goblins, or Frozen movie characters to satisfy their cravings for Halloween candy this Friday, October 31st.
The Elbow Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is presenting “Trunk or Treat” downtown Elbow Lake from 3:00 until 5:00 p.m. Join in the fun and trick or treat from the trunks of vehicles! That’s right, if you want to dish out the treats, businesses, clubs, or individuals are invited to decorate a car trunk or truck bed and hand out candy from your vehicle. Businesses along main street, or side streets, can also participate and hand out candy in their businesses as in the past.
There will also be a Kid-Friendly Haunted House at Mohagen’s Hardware during Trunk or Treat. No charge, just for fun and not too scary.
There will be a big Children’s Halloween Party in Barrett at the Lakeside Pavilion Friday, from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. sponsored by the Barrett Civic and Commerce.
This event is free and will feature fun games and prizes as well as a costume parade. There will be popcorn, hot dogs, and soda for sale and the Barrett Flames Auxiliary will provide a DJ to keep the music playing.
Later that evening the Lakeside Pavilion will be turned over to the adults for their own Halloween Party, from 8:00 p.m. until midnight.
There will be a DJ and cash bar, (ID required), cash raffles throughout the night with $1,000 in prizes, and a costume contest with $300 for Best Costume Group, $200 for Best Costume Couple, and $150 for Best Costume Single. The Adult Halloween Party is sponsored by the Barrett Fire Department and Flames Auxiliary.
