This year’s theme was: Myth, Magick and Mystery in the Moonlight:  While shoppers and trick-or-treater’s could stroll up and down Main Street in search of bargains and candies, the adults also had the opportunity to engage in a prize contest.

Participants would note what type of costume theme each of the stores represented that night and match them with a study sheet that offered corresponding words to the type of animal displayed by the store’s owner/manager.

For example, if the costumes were of lions, the player would circle the word, “pride” and once all the stores had been visited, they could turn in their sheet at Bettian’s for a chance to win a prize.
