ILWACO — Ghosts and ghouls, princesses and superheroes all walked the streets in search of sweets Monday’s Halloween night. But not all the tricks and treats were spooky, or on Monday for that matter.

The Ilwaco High Pep Band got the week off to a thrilling start, with their performance and dance routine of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” during halftime of the IHS football game last 

Friday night. The group of musicians-turned dancers were led by senior drum major Eli Schenk.

While scary characters were the norm, costumed kids also took a turn toward the humoruous. Once such example was the giant chicken, who carried a Chester Fried Chicken bag for its candy.


More photos from Halloween appear online & in next week’s paper
