Showers for Halloween? Great DRY Fun!Showers on Halloween (Saturday) afternoon AND evening?!?  Keep the kids dry AND happy by bringing them to the Sugar Grove Halloween Festival from 3 to 6 PM.  Don’t worry if you don’t have costume(s) for the kids because there will be a “Green Costume” table that will have previously used, donated costumes as well as other homemade things to dress the kids up.  (If you have any costumes you would like to re-cycle, bring them along.  Each costume you donate will get you $1 off the $8 price of the event.)  Another table that has been added since the earlier press release is a Halloween Cookie Decorating Table with pre-baked cookies just waiting to be frosted and decorated by the kids.  
The Haunted Hallway for kids 10 & over will be from 7 to 10 PM. Full Story
