Monsters, Mayhem and Much Much More!

trunk00By Linda Elissalde
Rock and Roller Cheryl Small and her monster crew of helpers created the biggest and best TRUNK OR TREAT event with Gulf Coast Market’s GHOST ON THE COAST! There were more games, more food, more costume contestants and more attendees to this annual celebration of All Hallows Eve. The Blue Bell Truck was even present so folks could enjoy that sweet ice cream from a little old creamery in Brenham, Texas. The entry way to the carnival was covered with warnings to beware. Participants were advised to follow the 3Cs in case of a zombie attack. Tombstones were covered with names such as Arewee Deadyet and Otto B Alive. Costumed creatures participated in games of chance, a cake walk, bounced on a dinosaur or in a castle, watched Marshmallow Man from Ghost Buster while enjoying various treats. Scary screams emanated from The Haunted House, but the line waiting to enter just grew longer.

Cheryl held sway over the annual costume contest. This contest provided numerous and varied entries. It was a task to find winners from such fine contestants. Of course, there was also a Pumpkin Decorating Contest. The five judges worked hard to pick winners in all age groups, and they did a grand job.
