Downtown business owners are also excited about contributing to such a popular festival for kids and adults alike.

“You know this is a great event when you make USA Today’s Top 10 Best Costume Parties in the U.S.,” Business Improvement District (Downtown Stillwater) Chair Kyle Gibbs said. “Downtown business owners and managers can’t wait for this year’s theme and to begin getting decorations ready. This year’s festival is going to be a fun one.”
