Halloween Costume Contest and Downtown Trick or Treating

Saturday, October 26, 2019

On Saturday, October 26th Edwardsville Parks Department in cooperation with the Edwardsville Lion’s Club will host a children’s costume contest at the City Park Bandstand immediately followed by downtown trick-or-treating. Participants will be grouped in separate age categories: baby to 3 years old, 4-6 years old, 7-9 years old, 10-12 years old and a special category for group costumes. The Edwardsville Lion’s Club will begin judging at noon with each child taking a turn on the stage at the bandstand. Prizes donated by GCS Credit Union will be awarded after each age category has been presented. Trick-or-treating on Main Street will immediately follow the costume contest. Participating Main Street merchants will be at their door offering candy to costumed children. This event is free of charge but parents must arrive at the park no later than 11:30 a.m. to register for the event.
