Fred the Legend Costume Found...part 4 of 5...
Is it ? Could it be ? the clown we want it to be ?
Keeping the legend alive..

it was that of a clown…could it be our Fred ?
could it be they asked..the one from our town..?
the clown with the smile turned upside down ?
the little red headed kid who disappeared..
on a cold windy night back twenty-two years..?
It was found they said in a field not far from here..
By a farmer whose Pumpkins... were the best far and near..
And every year a winner at the state fair…

It was he that made sure every porch was supplied..
With a Pumpkin that flickered..
and showed the towns' sorrowful side…
So hug your children and hold them near...
because this is the anniversary of the 22nd year..
Celebrating the spirits and their one nights’ ride
will go down through the years…so take it in stride
It's only a legend, a story that's old..
For this special night of October..I'm told
