Children will be given a full size Halloween treat bag, already filled with goodies, yet roomy enough to add more trick-or-treat candy they collect on Halloween. There will also be a costume contest and prizes, free delicious donuts, apple cider and more.

The parade begins at 10:30 am, traveling around Memorial Park, down the Avenue of Heroes, past the Memorial Pool, to the main concession stand. All participants should gather in their costumes beginning at 10:00 am behind the Memorial Pool Bathhouse.
