HAPPY Halloween!

For many Halloween will be quite different this year. I know my neighbors have been planning their decorations and are anticipating kids for Trick or Treat. You can make trick or treat safer by making a HALLOWEEN CANDY CHUTE to send candy down to those cute Trick or Treaters. This is a fun add to your decorating and will help to maintain social distancing in your neighborhood.

Here’s a Spooky Image taken with a cell phone in x-ray mode! I’m pretty sure my phone can’t do this!

wearable arts show

Did you know that each year, there is a Wearable Arts Show in Ocean Shores? The OSWAS puts on a “one night only” extravaganza of art designed to be worn on the human body . All types of artists come to the runway to showcase their functional, and not so functional, pieces of wearable art.

Each year the show has a theme. Artists are encouraged to create their pieces in line with this theme, but they are not required to do so. All pieces are unique, one-of-a-kind, creations for the show. You can enter to wear your hand-crafted costume on stage or join the audience and see what other cosplayers are making.

Check it out at www.oswearableart.com. Due to SAR-CoV-2 global pandemic, the show was cancelled this year. Next year’s event is June 5, 2021. Mark your calendars now.

Ocean Shores Convention Center. Admission: $20-$25.
