Halloween Carnival

Ocracoke School sponsored its annual Halloween Carnival Friday afternoon. There was a children's parade around the circle in front of the school at 3:30 (do any of our readers remember "Rockin' Rhonda's" outlandish costume a number of years ago?). Hot dogs, Mexican food, and soft drinks were available for sale. At 5 o'clock the new gymnasium was opened for a variety of games (bean bag toss, duck pond, shooting gallery, quarter toss...you name it!). Later on the gym was packed with folks playing Quizo (just another name for Bingo!). I think a Spook Walk is scheduled for sometime soon (maybe one of our readers has details).

    Hey Philip,

    The Spook Walk, sponsored by the high school Beta Club, will be Saturday, Nov 5th. I think it starts at 7pm. There are posters around town.

    And don't forget -- Trick or Treat is tonight! The little ones start about 4 or 5, before dark, and mostly walk the down point loop. I hope it doesn't rain...
