Witches Walk

Happy Halloween!
This is what I was up to this weekend!

{LeClaire Witches Walk}

My hometown sponsors the annual Witches Walk.
It's a super fun time for the kiddos.
Costume Contests, Petting Zoo, Train Rides, Story Telling, Cackle Contest... lots for them to do.

{The Crew}

My family
My little bro Matt & his fiance Katie, my Mom, Michael big bro, myself and Travis
There were many other family, friends and community members who helped too.
Michael made the wooden pallet welcome sign.


Michael and I did all the decorations.
We used corn stalks to wrap the posts.
I made the corn husk pom poms to hang from the ceiling.
Mini haybails, pumpkins and gourds were used for the table tops.
Michael wrapped the corner posts in fabric to soften the look a bit.

To help soften the pavilion Michael wrapped the corner posts in fabric.
Here is a great tip - we used canvas painters drop cloths. 
You can pick these up at your local hardware store for $12-$20 bucks.
It is a perfect inexpensive way to help soften an area like this.
We just used a little twine to tie them back.
It would also be a great fabric to use for a casual outdoor wedding.

{Train Rides}

I made the Train Rides burlap pennants.

{Petting Zoo}

{Our Witches Walkers}

All of the kids and parents line up for the big costume parade.
The kids get to walk through our downtown area showing off their costumes
 and all the businesses pass out candy.
