A tiny princess in pink tip toed around a circular set of numbers during one of the night's many cake walks. The pretty princess was joined by a miniature firefighter, a witch and a scary shark.

The cake walkers were some of the dozens of costumed
kids enjoying the Friends of the Chelan Library's annual Halloween party fundraiser Saturday at the soon-to-be new library in the former Masonic Lodge building on East Emerson Street.

Jace, 7, of Entiat, portrayed the shark as he swam around the circle until the music stopped. Jace the shark won the game's prize, a quartet of frosted cupcakes complete with Halloween colors and plastic spiders.

"I wanted to be a shark for a long time," Jace said after the walk was done. He planned to eat the cupcake with a black spider on it.

Jace attended the event with his younger brother Toby, 18 months, who was dressed as a bright green dragon.
Jace's parents, Janine and Brandon Young, enjoyed their young son's excitement.

Across the room a young Batman, complete with blow-up bat wings, waited in line for a bowling game. Batman was in line behind an older Rap Star and waited impatiently until it was his turn to go.

In another part of the room, Spiderman flexed his muscles as he tossed bean bags into a haunted house.

Spiderman, who is otherwise known as Nick, 6, of Chelan, is the son of Darlene and Steve Hawkins, of Chelan. Nick's parents took the proud young super hero around to a variety of festival game booths.

The "Monster Mash" song blared from a radio near the cake walk as a book fairy walked through the crowded room and up to the stage where Chelan resident Dan Quigley set up camp with his camera to take souvenir photos of the night. Part of the money from each photo taken during the night was given to the library as a donation.

Near the front of the room friends Trinity Edwards and Erma Morrison giggled with Emma's sister Paige Nowlan.

"She's from Manson and I'm from Chelan and we're best friends," said Emma, wearing her ghoulish facepaint. "She (Trinity) is spending the night at my house tonight. I'm in third grade and she's (Trinity) in second grade."

At the center of the new library's main floor stood 4-year-old Austin Garret Pratt.

Austin was a wiggly, proud porcupine this Halloween, and he sported a home-made hat, and prickly body that sparkled as he moved. Austin's father, Alaric Pratt, accompanied his active son to the Halloween party and wore a matching porcupine hat.

Austin's fur was littered with zip ties attached to the fur, making wiggling, and sparkling, a lot of fun. Both costumes were made by Austin's mother, Tammy Pratt.

"Last year he (Austin) wanted to be a chicken, and the year before that he wanted to be a skunk," Alaric Pratt said. Tammy Pratt made those costumes as well.

Paola Bravo held her 3-month-old son, Xavi, who was dressed as a monkey, complete with a banana hat and long, curly tail. Nearby, Karen Naranjo stood with her sister Karly, 4, who was dressed in bright pink. Karly was wonder woman, and next to her stood Luis, 7, who was a red ninja for the night.

Naranjo and her crew were happily creating light up eyeballs at the Halloween craft table.

By the front door, Tucker Flowers, 9, adjusted his creative costume. Tucker wore a clown's tie, mismatched shoes and two playground balls stuck in the back of his shorts.

"I'm 'Baby Got Back'," Tucker said as friend Wesley McCrady, 12, laughed.

Tucker was excited the costume contest was about to begin.

As the party proceeded, more and more excited kids entered the building to enjoy the festivities.

At 7 p.m., the annual costume contest began. Judges for this year's contest were Mary Signorelli and Les and Carolyn Cooper.
