With the crisp fall weather and Halloween right around the corner the Elsberry Community embraced the youngsters, and old alike, in Halloween weekend events.  Friday evening started the weekend off seeing children trick-or-treating at the annual FFA Trunk or Treat event.  Despite the cold dreary weather approximately 20 cars set up for the event.  With the COVID-19 pandemic it was decided late to have the annual event.

The Lincoln County Old Threshers Association kicked off their first Halloween Weekend Party on Friday night also.  Approximately 30 campers signed up for the weekend event, while many more people attended for the Saturday afternoon activities.  These activities included a pumpkin carving contest, costume contest, hay rides, trick or treating, bonfires, and the favorite, making s’mores. 

On Sunday New Hope Baptist Church hosted their annual Harvest Festival. Members from the church used their cars to make a circle  so that attendees could just walk around getting treats.  Approximately  25 trunks were decorated to help sell the event along with a fire truck from the Elsberry Fire Protection District.  The event was open to all, not just the New Hope Church family.
