After the costume contest, Comedian-Magician Gary Shelton will make a special appearance. “I am so looking forward to bringing a fun and magic filled evening to the New Bern Mall on October 30th,” Shelton said. “Seeing so many of the area’s kids in their favorite make-believe costumes will only add to the magic of this Halloween gathering. Numerous prizes and magical moments will fill this safe night of trick-or-treating and Magic.”

In addition to the costume contest and the show by Gary Shelton, Childcare Network will be painting children’s faces.
