Des Moines, Des Moines beggars night, beggar,

Beggars' Night was held the night before Halloween in Des Moines for young children. According to a Des Moines Register article, the event began around 1938 as a way to prevent vandalism and provide a safer way for younger children to celebrate Halloween. Beggars' Night is similar to trick-or-treating in that children are required to tell a joke, read a poem, or perform a "trick" in exchange for a treat.
