The Ryukyu Dragon professional wrestlers will team with kids Saturday for Halloween Town Koza that takes place on Koza Palmyra Street within Ichibangai shopping mall in Okinawa City.
The pro wrestlers, who have their home base in Navel Kadena, will lead children’s Trick or Treating and parade down the street. Many shops in the arcade are waiting for children to come and get free candy. On stage, Ryukyu Dragons Pro Wrestling will stage a free show. The Halloween Town Koza runs 3 p.m. ~ 9 p.m., on Oct. 31 and admission is free.
