Dear Ketchikan,

Our group, The All City Halloween Party Association Incorporated is a non-profit organization whose only goal is to provide this dry, free and safe Halloween party every year. Ketchikan is truly a great place to live when we can all come together like this 20th annual party. This year we stopped counting at 1,110 children coming through the doors, and that didn't even count the family members with them. Everyone had a great time going to all 23 booths at the Plaza where the children played games, and received lots of candy and prizes.

We wish to thank the following for their invaluable assistance of time, talent, goods and financial assistance this year:
