Halloween night schedule

Prosser - It's Halloween and there is lots to do here in Prosser for the kids.
 Listed are just some of the local safe, family friendly activities for the
 kids this Halloween. 

Downtown Trick or Treating at Local Businesses:   40 local businesses will be open and ready for your children on the downtown streets from 3 to 5 pm. Last year's downtown trick or treating was a huge success and business owners look forward to your participation again this year. As you walk around town, please use street corners and allow the Prosser High School Police Explorers to assist you and your children to cross the streets safely.
Sun Terrace's "Halloween Town": Each year the residents and staff at Sun Terrace welcome everyone for a special night of Trick or Treat. This event has been very special to the residents and they all look forward to seeing the children each year. The event will be from 6 to 7 pm.
Some of Washington's most haunted places

Record-Bulletin Staff
Gravity Hill is a legend and there are two different versions of the story. One is where a school bus full of children was stuck on the railroad tracks. Before the children could get out of the bus, a train came along and struck it, and all of the children were killed.
On Gravity Hill they say if someone stops their car on the tracks, puts the car in neutral, the ghosts of the lost children will push the car off the tracks, and uphill for several yards. Some people are said to have put talcum powder on their car bumpers, and claim that they have had children sized fingerprints smudges on the powder. But there are no train tracks near the hill nor was there any school bus disaster.
Calling all Trick-or-Treaters

Prosser - Be sure and plan to come downtown this Halloween for our first-ever Trick-or-Treat on Main Street! Almost all the downtown businesses will be providing candy for trick-or-treaters from 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Halloween.
Also, the 2014 Scarecrow Contest is now underway! The Scarecrow/Trick-or-Treat Map can be found at the Visitors Information Center (Train Depot) or in the Record Bulletin on Oct.  29.
Halloween safety

Prosser - Halloween is fast approaching and your firefighters at Prosser Fire District 3 would like wish everyone a fun and safe Halloween. We would also like to share some important fire safety tips with you and your children. 
When choosing a costume, stay away from billowing or long trailing fabric. If your child is wearing a mask, make sure eye holes are large enough so they can see out.
Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costumes.
History of Halloween

Halloween is celebrated on the night of October 31. There are bats, cats, costumes, makeup, trick-or-treating, bonfires, costume parties, haunted houses and carving jack-o-lanterns but why do we celebrate Halloween?  Here are a few facts put together for your enjoyment on this unusual holiday.
The word Halloween is a short version of All Hallows' Evening also known as Hallowe'en or All Hallows' Eve.  Irish and Scottish immigrants carried different versions of their traditions to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century including the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom as well as of Australia and New Zealand.
Bazaars start the holiday season

By Victoria Walker
The holiday season is rapidly approaching and with that the season for bazaars begins in Prosser. Each bazaar is unique and full of homemade food and handcrafted items that most of us just think about making. Bazaars are a great time to pick up those special gifts or stocking stuffers for the family.
The Prosser United Methodist Women's Country Fair Bazaar will be held Saturday, Nov. 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Prosser United Methodist Church, 824 6th Street, Prosser.
Mix it up

By Victoria Walker
On Tuesday PHS students participated in the 12th annual "Mix It Up" day hosted by the PHS M.E.Ch.A. Club, with Leadership students.   Mix It Up is simple: get to know other students and demonstrate kindness by making the PHS cafeteria a welcoming environment for every student.
"The cafeteria may appear to be a relaxed environment but studies have shown that the cafeteria is routinely ranked amongst the highest in student surveys of being an anxiety-ridden environment due to social groupings," says Carol Rivera, club advisor.
