What makes Levi Bates smile? “Kittens,” said the then 8-year-old, a then third-grade homeschooler. He was dressed up — from head to toe, including his faked pointed ears — as Link from the action-adventure game, “Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” and was found attending the 2022 Hamilton County 4-H Junior Leaders Halloween Party at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Noblesville. Could he hear better wearing the large rubber ears? “No, it’s just part of the costume,” he said grinning. He has a sister, Quinn Bates, then 11, who was with him and dressed as a witch at the Halloween party. Their parents are Richard and Stephanie Bates. Levi likes to play outside, “pretty much run around and make noise.” Favorite school subject? “I do really like Science.” Favorite food? Chicken. Favorite movie? “One of my favorite movies is ‘Sonic.’ I also like ‘Spiderman.’” This year’s Junior Leaders Halloween Party will be 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, with Halloween carnival, haunted house and hayride. The event offers games, refreshments and fun. Read today’s Betsy Reason column for a list of Halloween events.
