Hiawatha Halloween Frolic Tuesday

(KNZA)--The 109th Annual Hiawatha Halloween Frolic will be held Tuesday, October 31st.

The Frolic, which has been a tradition since 1914, was started by Elizabeth Krebs in an effort to give the town's youth something else to do besides tearing up her gardens.

This year's theme is " Hiawatha's Moonlight Monsters."

The Frolic will feature the Miss Mary Children Costume Contest at 1:00 in the afternoon at the Brown County Historical Society's Memorial Auditorium, with registration starting at 12 noon.

The traditional afternoon Kiddie Parade will kick off around the Courthouse Square in downtown Hiawatha at 3:00.

10 girls are vying for Halloween Queen this year, with the crowning to place at 6:00 on the north side of the courthouse square.

The Hiawatha High School marching band will perform at 5:45 prior to the crowning.

The grand evening parade will begin at 7:00 traveling from Hiawatha High School down Oregon Street.

Linda Lock will serve as grand marshal of this year's parade. Lock was nominated by the public for the honor and voted on by Hiawatha Chamber and Visitors Bureau members.
