Okay, princesses, princes, ninjas, skeletons, animals, witches and ghouls, it’s time to join everyone in the annual Halloween Parade! The parade is this Saturday, October 26th.
Here are the details…meet up with everyone behind the post office at 9:30 a.m. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. and will travel through our downtown Pendleton streets en route to Falls Park.
Once the parade arrives at the Falls Park Shelter House, judging will begin. This year’s categories are: scariest, prettiest, cutest, funniest and most original. Judging will be done in six age groups: preschool, Kindergarten, 1st – 2nd grade, 3rd – 4th grade, 5 – 6th grade and 7th grade and up. All of you boys and ghouls…I mean girls…will have the chance to win cash prizes and everyone who joins the parade in costume will receive a bag of goodies.
For more than two decades, this parade has been an annual Halloween tradition traveling through downtown. The Lion’s Club will be sponsoring this fun and free event so come out and participate!
