Bargains Rule for Moonlight Madness

Moonlight Madness fans enjoyed perfect weather this past Thursday evening, whether roaming the streets of downtown Lamar in search of a bargain, doing a little trick or treating in various stores, or gazing at the artistry on display at the Shore Arts Center.

The annual event featured dress up time for adults and kids with a theme of a masquerade of monsters, mobsters or Mod-sters.  Folks could linger around the ‘Minions’ characters waiting on customers at bettians, or wander with a witch or a mobster’s moll at the Depot Book Store.  The Science Guy in the guise of Bill Nye and his family stopped in for a treat at Brew Unto Others, with a peeking Pikachu darting a glance from behind his back while Misty smiled for the cameraman.  If you wanted hairstyles in the colors of the rainbow, J & N Shoes and Mr. D’s was the stop-off point for shoppers on Thursday evening. 

The Southeast Colorado Art Guild Annual Autumn Art Show, headquartered at the Shore Arts Center also pulled in a crowd who viewed the art work on display from sculptures to photos , while the Take Five Jazz Ensemble provided entertainment through the evening. 

April Harbour was chosen as the winner of the Customer Appreciation Treat Basket, totaling $500 in gift certificates and coupons from participating stores.  Lenora Springer and “Good Witch” Carla Scranton conducted the drawing at Noon on Friday, estimating about 1,000 entries for the prizes since the start of the Moonlight Bargains day through Thursday, October 24.
