North Liberty kids “Use the Force” to win Halloween Costume Contest

The City of North Liberty held its Halloween Costume Contest this year via Facebook. Results were determined by the photo that received the most Likes by 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2. The winners were notified via Facebook and awarded a $100 gift card to the North Liberty Recreation Center, to be used towards membership or program fees.
Brothers Asa, 10, and Jasper, 6 months, children of Alex and Kelly Pelzel, won 1st place for their costumes. The siblings paid tribute to the 1977 sci-fi classic Star Wars, with Asa as Luke Skywalker in pilot gear and Jasper as his trusty droid, RD-D2, in the X-wing starfighter. Their dad, Alex, built the X-wing from scratch using an umbrella stroller, wood, foam board, PVC and five rolls of duct tape.
Other contest entries can be seen on the North Liberty city government Facebook page and by using the hashtag #NLHaunts.
