Young by with an ugly costume, 1968.

On Oct. 31, 1968, the Normal Parks and Recreation Department and the Optimist and Rotary clubs sponsored a Halloween costume parade at ISU’s Horton Field House. Seen here is Jack Cruser of Normal, who won the grand prize after taking first place in the “ugliest costume” category for those in the first grade or younger. Jack’s prize was a Magnavox transistor radio.
