Mayor Bianchi said, “The Halloween Parade is fun for the entire family.  I encourage all of our community groups to participate in this year’s parade.  The more groups participating, the better the parade is for our children.  Thank you to the many organizations that take part in the Halloween Parade each year.”

There will be a float seminar for all organizations building floats.  If your organization/school would like to build a float, a representative must attend.  This seminar will be Wednesday, September 16th at 6:00 p.m. in room 203 of City Hall.

All new parade participants must attend a mandatory meeting on Monday, October 26th in room 203 of City Hall, 70 Allen Street. The meeting begins at 6:00 p.m.  One representative of each new organization must attend a meeting if they plan to be in the parade.
