Elks host kid's costume bash
The Storm Lake children's Halloween Costume Contest returns this year.
"We asked the Elks Club to help us out, and they were very excited to jump right on this," said Marilyn Monson, of the Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce.
The fun begins at 2:30 on Saturday, October 27, following the downtown trick-or-treating, which starts at 2 p.m.
Judging of the costume contest will be held at 3 p.m., and there will be treats and refreshments. Admission is free. For more information, contact the chamber of commerce.
