What are you going to be for Halloween? A ghost? Zombie? Princess? Superhero? The possibilities are endless on Halloween when kids can become anything they like.
On Tuesday, Oct. 31, the Madison Police Department will host their annual Downtown Halloween event starting at 6 p.m. in downtown Madison. Children are invited to dress up and come downtown to trick-or-treat where local businesses and individuals will be set up passing out candy.
New to the event this year will be a costume contest. The categories for the contest will be ages five and under, ages 6-12 years-old and ages 12-18 years-old. Awards will be given out to first, second and third place winners in each category. Awards for the most creative costume and the most scary costume will also be presented. Be sure to register for the contest at the Madison Police Department's table, which will be located on Pinckney Street in front of the courthouse, starting at 6 p.m. on Oct. 31. But hurry, space is limited to 20 kids per age category.
For businesses and individuals who would like to pass out candy during Madison's Downtown Halloween, please call the Madison Police Department at (850) 973-5077 or visit their office located at 310 SW Rutledge Street, Madison.
