Edon Community Holds Fangtastic Halloween Bash

Edon Halloween2014 - LHF(3) WEBIt was all treats and no tricks across Edon as residents of every age gathered for the annual Community Halloween Rally at Edon Northwest Local Schools. Hosted by Edon Music Boosters and Edon Schools Music Department, the Spooktacular evening of fun, food and fellowship added the final touches to the Village’s traditional Trick or Treat and Trunk or Treat activities on Saturday, October 25, 2014.

The Boo-nanza started off with a delectable, mouth-watering meal prepared by the Boosters. With a menu offering Wendy’s Chili, hot sandwiches, yummy desserts and brewing beverages, no guest was left famished! As Dinosaurs, Super Heroes and Princesses entered the Auditeria; frightfully delightful sounds from the Edon Junior High Band hinted the Parade of Costumes would soon begin.

Bootiful children excitedly lined the stage for the Costume Contest judging while encouraging family and friends rooted them on. The wide-ranging display of creative costumes made the judges’ final decisions rather tricky to reach! Receiving top prizes in each category were:
