The Denton Orator


Halloween Street Treat is FRIDAY
The 18th annual Halloween Street Treat, sponsored by the Town of Denton Parks and Recreation, is set for FRIDAY, October 31 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Denton. In addition to the usual trick-or-treating, some special activities are on the schedule including a Costume Contest, a Cake Walk hosted by Central UMC, a Pumpkin Carving Contest, and performances by KCDC dancers in Harrison Park.
Anyone interested in entering the pumpkin carving contest should bring their Jack ‘O Lanterns to The Denton Orator office no later than NOON Thursday, October 30. All pumpkins will be on display in Harrison Park. The winning pumpkin will receive a $50 cash prize!
Judging for the Costume Contest will be held from 6:30 to 7:00p.m. in the park; entrants should line up at the ramp along the side of the stage. Contest winners will be featured in the November 6 edition of the Orator.
And be sure stick around in the park at the conclusion of judging, because Denton’s own KCDC dancers will present their spectacular Halloween show at 7 p.m. to the awesome sound of Jimmy Carroll Sound Company- a great way to wrap up a fun evening!
