Library Hosts Halloween Costume Contest

Ghosts, goblins, witches and grim reapers,

Halloween night brought out many trick or treaters

There were lions and bears walking the streets,

scaring the children, gathering sweets.

Bonfires with hot dogs, hot chocolate and coffee

held with sticky fingers all covered in toffee.

Many TR residents took part in the fun

adorned their best costumes, so let?s see who won!

The Tumbler Ridge Library held a costume contest on Halloween. To enter, you had to scare up a spooky costume or gather together a creative costume, sure to turn heads and make people think. Entries were received throughout the day. Those who stopped by were photographed and offered a sweet treat.

Sharon Bray, organizer of the Halloween costume contest, said there were many different and wonderful costumes. This was the first year for the costume contest, explained Bray. It was a nice addition to other activities held by the library on Halloween.

The library hosted two free movies for people who wanted to get out for an evening of fun and relaxation. Tuesday, October 30th, the library screened ?Ernest Scared Stupid?. Bray explained this is a family favourite and wanted to share it with the residents of Tumbler Ridge. Thirty-six people joined together for a night of laughs.

Eight people attended the movie on Halloween. ?Eight Legged Freaks? was shown to those in attendance. Bray said she was pleased with the attendance for both movie nights.

The Tumbler Ridge Library was transformed to celebrate Halloween. Walking under the spider webs with large spiders hanging from the ceiling and posing with the mummy helped create an eerie feeling within the library.

The majority of costume entries were brave enough to pose with the mummy. Eighty entries, including individuals and groups, made it difficult to decide the winners of the event. Secret judges studied the images intensely to decide upon the winners.

The winners of the costume contest are:

Best Child: Noah Buntz

Best Teen: Luke Bray

Best Group: Preschool

Best Family: Mr. and Mrs. Falcon

A huge congratulations to everyone who entered the contest. The costumes were very creative and the effort and enthusiasm is greatly appreciated. Look for more Halloween and pictures in this issue.
