Behind the police station, of all places. Of course, that only means it's the line up for the annual Ada Kiwanis Club Halloween parade.

The Icon loves captive moments like this one. We meet lots of interesting folk. There were lots of movie characters, who you will see below.

An Ada Halloween story

Note: Here's an Ada Halloween story. Leland Crouse alerted the Icon about it, which was originally posted in Betty Miller's Small Town Sampler on Oct. 24, 1990. 

Sitting in a group of friends one of the ladies brought up a story about seeing a ghost at her downtown apartment. I had to hear the whole story and went to visit my friend.

My friend’s husband bought a building in Ada. For several years the couple had lived on the second floor apartment while they remodeled the third floor, a former lodge hall where meetings and entertainment were held from 1905 until sometime in the 1940s.

Ada hosts rival Mustangs with league, playoffs at stake

By Cort Reynolds
The Ada football team can salvage a disappointing season with an upset of backyard arch-rival Allen East Friday in the regular season finale.

A Bulldog victory would deprive AE (8-1, 5-1 NWC) a share of the league title, and possibly also a playoff spot. 

On the other hand, with a victory AE will grab at least a share of their first conference title since 1995 - and clinch its first playoff berth in 13 years.

The Mustangs won 20-14 at home vs. Crestview in week nine to stay in a three-way tie for the league lead with two-time defending champion Spencerville, and 2018 co-champion Columbus Grove.
