Join the Tuscola Public Library on Oct 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for their third annual downtown Halloween party and trick-or-treat. Costumes are encouraged and the event is open to the public of all ages and communities.
Events begin at 5:30 p.m. where ghosts and goblins of all ages can strut their stuff in a costume parade down Sale street. If you are interested in participating, please line up at the Gazebo. Tuscola Kiwanis will be giving prizes for best costumes. Following the parade, there is no order to events. Please feel free to visit downtown businesses, trunk-or-treat, or go to the community building.
Inside the community building, the Tuscola Library will be hosting a Halloween party. There will be crafts and games including pumpkin tosses, an obstacle course, spider race, pin the bolt on Frankenstein, pumpkin twister, zombie tag, and ghost knock down. Light refreshments and lots of candy will be provided. Anyone interested in volunteering with these events, please call or stop by the library.
Some downtown businesses will be staying open late to pass out candy to trick-or-treaters. Please visit the Downtown Design Studio, Cast Iron Pub, All Pro, Okaw Veterinary Clinic, The Journal, Vintage Karma, Sweet Soul Boutique, Alpha and Omega, Allied Title Capital, Flesor’s Candy Kitchen, Winterberry, American Legion, and Mi Veracruz.
Trunk-or-Treat is hosted by Tuscola Rotary and will be held in the community building parking lot filled with other Tuscola businesses, organizations, and residents. These currently include First Mid Bank & Trust, First Federal, the Class of 2020, Douglas County Health Department, Tuscola Women’s Club, Church of Christ, and National Honors Society. If you are interested in setting up a trunk, please contact Anna at Anna@tuscola.org by Friday Oct 25.
