Easton Lions Club Halloween Bonfire Is Back

The Lions Club of Easton, founded on April 19, 1967, will host its 54th Halloween Bonfire and Costume Contest on Sunday, Oct. 31, at approximately 6:30 p.m.m at Samuel Staples Elementary School by the soccer fields just south of the school on Morehouse Road, the same location as in years past.

The event is open to all ages and admission is free, with music, doughnuts, cider, and apples all available at no charge. The bonfire usually towers up to 30 feet!

Many in the community have generously helped to supply items for this event: Keith Lobdell of “Just a Song Entertainment” will provide music; Todd Bires will provide lighting; Irv Silverman’s Farm will bring apples and cider; Tony Spinelli will supply doughnuts; Tim McCann and Irv Silverman will supply the wood and build the bonfire, with the Easton Fire Department, Easton Police, and the Easton EMS overseeing the bonfire.

The “Brotherhood Knights of Gore” will make an appearance again this year, sponsored by the Easton Park & Recreation Department, which will take place immediately following the costume contest.

Prize ribbons will be awarded in three costume categories: Funniest, Prettiest, and Most Original for five different age groups from ages two to adult.
