The Horton’s Kids Halloween party was held on Oct. 25, in the Cannon Caucus room in the U.S. House of Representatives. The kids arrived in costume and were ready to party, excited to snack on pizza, brownies, lemonade, and of course, candy!
The Horton’s Kids committee decorated every inch of the room, and were dressed to play the part. The party included cupcake decorating, face painting, coloring, a toilet paper “mummy wrap,” a candy jar guessing game, a candy corn relay and a candy toss. In addition to the stations set up for games and activities, there were a few special events, including a costume parade along a real red carpet, a “Thriller” dance lesson and an all-out dance party to the kids’ favorite songs. There were smiles, laughs, squeals and frosting-smeared happy faces everywhere. The parties thrown by the Horton’s Kids committee have a special place, as they provide the kids with a safe space in which they can let loose and just be kids.
