October is practically here, and I am hopeful it will be filled with rainy afternoons and chilly evening air, brighter hues on the leaves, apple crisps, and the usual array of fall activities.
The Rollercoaster Fair, the Pumpkin Festival, corn mazes, and trips to Dennison’s Roadside Market and Old Mulkey are all in order.
As far as the paper goes, October is a favorite time for fun, spooktacular promotions. This year in addition to our Halloween pet costume contest we will be hosting a Kids Costume Photo Contest. The deadline is October 31st.
We will pick three winners in three categories, which will run in the following week’s papers: Scariest, Funniest, and Most Creative.
Each child will be awarded a candy basket. For pets, we will award treats.
Submissions must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, by midnight on October 31st. No exceptions. Please participate in this fun event. All photos will be printed in the paper.
