Dixon Main Street and the Lee County Council on Aging will host a Monster Breakfast fundraiser from 7 a.m. - 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30 at the Post House Ballroom. Guests will be greeted by costumed characters and they will enjoy a breakfast buffet by Mama Cimino's. Cost is $4 for adults, $2 for children 12 and under and you get a $1 off when you come in costume.

Dixon Main Street executive director Josh Albrecht said he expects the event to be a fun way to enjoy Halloween in downtown Dixon as the annual Dixon Noon Lions annual Halloween Parade follows the breakfast at 10 a.m.

"With the Monster Breakfast and the annual Lions' Halloween Parade being held the same morning, this is a great opportunity for area families to celebrate Halloween in a safe and fun way," Albrecht said.

The Monster Breakfast is being served buffet-style by Mama Cimino's, which recently started serving Sunday brunch. The breakfast will feature several breakfast items including, eggs, sausage and pancakes. McDonald's will be providing orange drink for the kids. Fifth Third Bank and Astro-Ven Distributors are also sponsoring the event. Proceeds from the event will go to support activities and programs for Dixon Main Street and the LCCOA.

The annual Noon Lions Halloween Parade also includes a costume contest with judging starting at 9:30 a.m. at Haymarket Square. All participants in the parade receive a treat bag donated by local businesses, Dixon High School Leo Club and the Noon Lions.
