I think I may be wearing Howl as he's the most "kid-friendly" costume I have. Smile

QUESTION! If I was to bring Hello Kitty small stickers or candy to hand out to the kids, would that be ok?

You can hand it out -- I don't see why not.
We wouldn't be able to sell anything without paying a table fee Smile
