Halloween Carnival/Costumes: October 27

Mark your calendars for our annual Halloween Carnival, October 27th starting at 5:30 PM. This is a fun event for children (and adults) to show off their costumes and play games for treats and prizes. Cost is $3 per child or $10 per family. The Knights of Columbus will also be hosting a dinner that includes a grilled hot dog, bag of assorted chips, and lemonade/water. All children in costumes are invited to eat for free, and the cost is $2 for everyone else, including parents. The Knights will also offer beer and wine. (Please do not bring alcohol.) Family and friends are invited.

Mrs. Lambert and I want our carnival to be lots of fun for the kids! (Anybody who knows me well knows that I absolutely love Halloween!) However, this is a family event and we do not want the younger children to be scared by our decorations or by costumes that other children wear. So, no weapons (real or fake) are allowed at the carnival. Children may wear masks and makeup, but they may not be too scary, be inappropriate for a Catholic event, or have blood (a small amount may be acceptable if cleared through us).

What is too scary or inappropriate? Clearly, that is an opinion question, and the final determination of whether or not a costume/makeup is appropriate rests with Mrs. Lambert and me. There is no possible way for us to delineate every acceptable costume or type of makeup. So, if you are not sure if your child’s costume follows these rules, please call us and/or send us a picture.

Thank you for your help in keeping the carnival fun for everyone!
