Katie Mercer, enhancement coordinator for the Woodstock Enhancement Committee, said about 400-600 people typically attend the annual event, which will be held 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

She said activities include face painting, mask making, tattoos, monster mural coloring, pumpkin painting, a magic show at 11:30 a.m., a petting zoo, wooden craft making with Lowes, a costume party at Joe’s Steakhouse, food from Emmanuel Episcopal Church and trick-or-treating at over 20 local businesses and organizations.

Children 5 to 12 years old can also register to win the honor of lighting the town Christmas tree with Woodstock Mayor Jeremy McCleary at this year’s Light Up Woodstock celebration on Dec. 2.
