If you are a student in grades 6-12, start designing your costume for the Birmingham Public Library’s Annual Ghoul’s Ball on Thursday, October 28, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Central Library.
Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes in the following categories: Spookiest, Most Creative, and Favorite Book Character. Get ready for music, a dance contest, Wii games, a bungee run, good eats, photos, and more. To relieve parents’ minds, numerous chaperones and security will be on hand to run the fun. Teens and tweens should be picked up promptly at 9. Registration required—visit your local BPL branch or call 226-3655. Sorry—younger siblings and parents are not invited.
