Howl-O-Ween Medallion Hunt to begin Oct. 21

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The Eagle Rock Community Association (ERCA) and the Eagle Rock Friends of the Library will begin the Howl-O-Ween Medallion Hunt on Sunday, Oct. 21. The hunt is open to all area community members.

Clues to the location of the hidden Howl-O-Ween Medallion will be on display at the Eagle Rock Branch Library, the Eagle Rock Fire Station and the Community Connection Thrift Store throughout the week. A different clue will be offered at 9 a.m. each day.

If an ERCA member locates the medallion he or she will receive a $250 cash prize. If a community member who is not an ERCA member is the first to find the medallion he or she will receive a $100 prize.

ERCA and the Eagle Rock Friends of the Library will hold a car show at the Eagle Rock Community Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 27. Trophies will be awarded to the top 30 entries. Five other specialty trophies will also be distributed.

The entry fee is $20 per car. The show will feature original stock, antique and custom cars.

Food concessions and vendor booths will be available at the car show and Howl-O-Ween Fest. A disc jockey will provide music for the car show, and local groups are scheduled to perform later in the afternoon.

The Howl-O-Ween Fest will begin at 3 p.m. Kids are encouraged to come dressed in their Halloween costumes. The festival will offer games, a costume contest and a bounce house.

Votes for the Little Miss Eagle Rock Contest will be cast by those who attend the festival. The contest is open to girls who are 8 years old or younger. The winner will receive a trophy and savings bond.
