Thomaston — Halloween at Thomaston Grammar School was a busy day. Students began their day with an assembly presented by Mad Science of Maine. This hands-on event was sponsored by the Friends and Family of TGS group. The presentation, titled "Up, Up, and Away," was another educational outlet for all attending students. Students learned about the force that comes from the weight of the earth's atmosphere, Bernoulli's principle, how a hot air balloon is launched, how a hovercraft works, and more. There was high audience participation in this learning event.

Later in the day, students participated in a costume parade. The school didn't let the rain interfere with festivities, and carried on in the gymnasium instead of on the usual walk outdoors. Students and staff members showed some spooky spirit and had on some creative costumes.

After school, there was the annual Trunk-or-Treat event. The event went on as planned, but was relocated to the gymnasium due to the afternoon weather. Families who attended were able to walk the plank, visit Jurassic Park, go to the desert, skip down the yellow brick road, visit the land of the Trolls, have their photo taken with aliens, and more. Approximately 500 children and their families attended this large family event. One could say the event was a Thriller.
