Kids have a 'scary' good time at library Halloween event

Children help Glinda and Agent Egg trade foot-warming booties to some trolls with chilly feet. In exchange the kids collected two "dragon eggs" as a part of the library's annual Halloween event, this year called " “The Labyrinth of Not-So-Terrible Terror."

An estimated 425-450 people went through the public library's annual Halloween childrne's event, this year called "The Labyrinth of Not-So-Terrible-Terror." The event started at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31. Library event and gallery coordinator Katie Chaffee said it was "wildly successful."

Visitors travelled through the "Labyrinth of Not-So-Terrible-Terror" with a guide. The kids were asked to help find "dragon eggs" and return them to a wizard. They then recieved a candy "reward."

Chaffee said the annual "adventure" was put on by the library in cooperation with friends, the River Falls Royal Ambassadors, River Falls High School FBLA students and other area people.
