Cookie Monster, jelly fish and baby chicks, oh my! The 44th Annual Citizens Bank & Trust Halloween costume contest and parade was a hit on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, in Rock Port. The perfect weather brought all the ghouls and goblins to the bank’s parking lot, where 219 participants showed off their costumes. The bank served over 300 hot dogs to the crowd and gave out many prizes to their favorite costumed characters.
