The Weather Outside Was Frightful

The Big Store delivers come rain or come shine. Wind and moisture did not stop the annual Trunk or Treat Ghost on the Coast presentation by Gulf Coast Market. Cheryl Small and her hardy band of volunteers produced one of the best Halloween Events that the peninsula has ever had. All were welcomed by sweet witch Rita Moseley and Sharon “No Last Name Please.” Each guest received a ticket for drawings that happened every 15 minutes. Prizes included two $10 certificates from Subway, a $25 certificate from Steve’s Landing, 3 certificates from Nail Essentials, SnoCones for a party of 5, two dinner certificates from Stingaree, and 2 lovely gift baskets. There would also be a raffle for a Cake by Geri.

Monsters, mermaids and mad hatters roamed with witches, goblins and grim reapers while enjoying hot dogs, candy treats and drinks galore. Choices of games included balloon pops, pumpkin toss, cake walk, miniature golf and even a toilet paper toss into one fine old out house. You could bounce in a castle or on a dinosaur. Brave folk lined up to traverse the Haunted House. That was in spite of a warning to, “Enter at your own risk.”

You can’t have Halloween without a costume contest. Judges Marsha and Moody Fredenburg and Marilyn and Norm Morua faced a real challenge in picking winners from the myriad gowned contestants this year. Even though it was hard to pick the best of the best, our judges did a great job.

Skies were dark and monsters abounded. Still, no one needed to fear. Peninsula EMS and Port Bolivar Fire Department were on the grounds to protect everyone. It was a perfect Halloween Carnival. Gulf Coast Market did it again. There just isn’t a Halloween party to equal GHOST ON THE COAST! Come again next year – if you dare!
