As holidays go, Halloween proved fun and festive as the Prescott/Nevada County Chamber of Commerce was active promoting both a Business Costume contest and later, a Halloween Costume contest along with the annual Trick or Treat on Elm Street last week.
During the day on Tuesday, October 31, it was the adults that had fun first as a number of local businesses had their employees dress up, and it the end, it proved to be a clean broom’s sweep for local doctor’s offices. Using a clever Alice in Wonderland theme, Teague’s Eye Clinic was named the top Halloween winner in business with Dr. Alan Fox’s office placing second, and Dr. Michael Young’s office named third.
The daytime fun was a preliminary to activities afterhours Tuesday as Elm Street became a costume parade, and a host of winners in various age divisions were announced (from first to third places):
• Infant to 11-month: Carson McGlone, peanut; Addison Zikano, lion; and Eli Carter, cowboy.
• 12-23-month: Tidus Smith, a log truck driver; Easton was second as a rodeo clown; Ava Britton, a little monster, was third.
• 2-3 year old group: Carter Lawrence, a lumberjack; Brixx Richardson as “Cowboy Brixx”; and Raiden Thompson, as a police officer.
• 4-5 year old group: Azariah Smith, a “real tired” mama; Harper Morris, Shimmer; and Major Coulter, a radioactive boy.
• 6-8 year old group: Elise Meador as Mary Poppins; Quinton Cox as King Kong; and Brylee Loudermilk, as an 80’s girl.
• 9-10 year old group: Cobey Brinkmeyer, dressed as a jester; Elizabeth Dillard as “Day of the Dead”, and Cody Dufrene, as a cowboy.
