TRICK'R TREAT
OCTOBER 31


If you are a kid or want to act like a kid ... put on your wildest costume and come to Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts after the Mineral Point Halloween Parade from 5-7 pm. Children of all ages will meet friendly (not scary) costumed characters who will be passing out Halloween treats at each of the historic buildings.
This Mineral Point tradition is enjoyable for the whole family and a great way to meet other free spirits while checking out their wacky get-ups.



SANTA DAY

Once again, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will make a photo op appearance at Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts. Photos with Santa are a great holiday tradition.

Workshops will also be available. Decorate gingerbread houses and make holiday crafts -- it's a full day of family fun!
