On Saturday, November 3, Plymouth County 4-H’ers, families, and friends attended the annual 4-H Halloween Party hosted by the County 4-H Council. The spook-tacular party was held at the Plymouth County Extension Office in the Lower Level of the Le Mars Convention Center. Participants were able to take part in many carnival booth type games like Pin the Nose on the Pumpkin, Spider Web toss, Ladder Golf, Corn Hole, and a Cookie Walk. There was also a craft table where youth could paint pumpkins. They could also try their luck at guessing the amount of candy in the jar which was then given to the closest guesser. Tickets were awarded at each activity and then members could trade their tickets in for prizes. 4-H’ers and their families were treated to snacks and homemade goodies. The highlight of the event was the Haunted House. While 4-H’ers were taking part in the games, special judges voted on the best costume and the best decorated or carved pumpkin.

At the end of the festivities the winners were announced and prizes were awarded in each category. Winners in the costume contest were: Cailyn Badar as an Emoji, Ella Kneip as a Nurse, Megan Brennan as a Chef, Armando De Luna as a storm trooper, and Savannah Hitchler as an Incredible. Winners of the Pumpkin Contest were Tessa Trierweiler, Cailyn Badar, and Megan Trierweiler. Winning the container of candy for the best guess was Alexander De Luna.

Anyone in grades 4-12 can participate in the Plymouth County 4-H program. For more information contact the ISU Extension and Outreach Office at 712-546-7835 or xplymouth@iastate.edu.
