Children 12 and younger are encouraged to come in costume. The model homes, displayed in a community setting, allow trick-or-treating in a controlled environment. Local businesses and civic organizations have sponsored individual homes and will hand out candy or treats from them during the event.

Children will be entertained by magician Ishkabibble next door at Della Honda at 3 p.m. There will be arts and crafts, a raffle and games. Participants can bob for apples and enjoy cider and munchkins.

District 3 will have a fire truck on display and offer fire safety advice ,and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department will be offering a child fingerprinting and ID service from 2 to 4 p.m.

Parking will be available on site as well as at Della Honda.

Plattsburgh Housing Outlet will again contribute all proceeds from the Halloween Festival to the Ronald McDonald House in Burlington, to date, that has totaled more than $47,000. Statistics show that more than 70 percent of the families using that facility are from the New York side of the lake. The suggested $1-per-child donation, as well as funds collected from the games and raffle, will all benefit the Ronald McDonald House and its support of families in need.
