Prizes will be awarded to children dressed in costumes depicting 18th or 19th century persons of American historical importance, such as (for example): George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, Clara Barton, Harriet Tubman, Sitting Bull, Frederick Douglas, or Tecumseh.


However, all trick-or-treaters and their parents are welcome, and nobody need wear an historical costume to participate, receive Halloween candy, and join in all the fun!
