Costume contest canceled
To the Editor:
A big “boo” to the city of Woodstock for canceling its annual costume contest on the Square, thus greatly disappointing at least three dozen costumed children already gathered – not to mention their parents, grandparents and various onlookers.
At 4 p.m. on Halloween, it was barely raining and quite warm. Everybody had umbrellas and was prepared for bad weather. Many people look forward to this contest every year, and it is good family fun.
