ELLISVILLE – The rain didn’t stop about three thousand princesses, super heroes, goblins and ghouls from having fun at the annual Jones County Junior College Treats in the Streets on Halloween evening. The event was moved into the gym because of rainy weather, but the festivities continued. Hundreds of kids participated in the costume contests for babies and teens, honoring the most creative kids with treats from JCJC and lots of games with sweet prizes.
College students who dressed the best were also given cash prizes for their efforts. Winning the Most Original category was the Rosie the Riveter, Taylor Lacina of Purvis. The scariest JCJC student competing was Cody Pate of Van Cleave as Skeletor. The Most Creative was Shelby Wesson of Petal and Sam Cruz of Pensacola, FL, dressed as Jasmine and Aladdin, and Best Overall Costume went to the group from Alice in Wonderland including Carrie Craven of Ellisville as the Mad Hatter, Lauren Box of Leakesville dressed as Alice of Wonderland and Heather Bruce of Richton as the Cheshire Cat.
Treats in the Streets is an annual, free, community event that is hosted by the JCJC Student Government Association and the city of Ellisville.
