Safe Trick-Or-Treat costume contest winners announced!
Just over 100 Trinidad merchants participated in this year’s Safe Trick-or-Treats for Kids on Wednesday, October 31st from 3 to 5 p.m. Participating businesses also took place in voting for their favorite costumes for the costume contest sponsored by The First National Bank in Trinidad. Each participating merchant was given 10 “voting tokens” to award to their favorite costumed trick-or-treaters as they visited their establishments. Trick-or-treaters who received tokens returned to The First National Bank lobby at 5:00 p.m. for a tally of the “votes”. The top four costume contest winners received prizes donated by local businesses which included an award ribbon, a Wal-Mart gift card, a Trinidad Lanes bowling gift certificate, Tutti Scoops ice cream gift certificate, and a Movie Picture Showhouse pass among other toys and prizes.
First place winner was 8-month-old Brooklyn MacDonald, who was dressed as Raggedy Ann. Second place winner was 8-month-old Jaxon Torres, who was dressed as a tame lion in a circus cage. Third place winner was 7-year-old Zeihnyeall Gonzales, who was dressed as a bird in a cage. Fourth place winner was 2½-year-old Alexyana Sanchez, who was dressed as a scarecrow. Kids and businesses alike had a wonderful time celebrating a safe Halloween – a standing tradition in Trinidad and a gift to the community from the merchants. The First National Bank in Trinidad would like to give a special ‘thank you’ to all who participated and to the City of Trinidad and Trinidad Police Department for closing Main and Commercial Streets and patrolling to ensure a safe afternoon for everyone.
