The First Annual Broadway Halloween Parade, a community and family-friendly event, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 21 at 6:00p.m. in the heart of Broadway. Stretching from Third to Alameda along Broadway, the inaugural Broadway Halloween Parade will feature various spooky floats, bands and marchers. All attendees are encouraged to join in the fun by wearing your favorite Halloween costume. At the end of the parade, all are asked to march in the street to bring the Halloween bash to a close.
Don’t forget to check out the parade website (broadwayhalloweenparade.com) to see what fun things you can do both before and after the parade along Broadway. Various restaurants, bars, shops, gyms and other merchants will have specials leading up to the parade. Stop in at the Wizard's Chest or Buffalo Exchange to get your costume, get a $2 hot chocolate or coffee at Metropolis Coffee, 20 percent off draft beers at Baere Brewing and finish the night with ice cream from Sweet Action! And if you need to work off the Halloween candy you just ate, both Push Gym and Move Studios are offering specials by mentioning the parade.
Do you have a blood-curdling float? A herd of undead horses? A troop of macabre dancers? A monstrous marching band? If you are a non-profit, neighborhood organization, school or member of the Broadway Merchant's Association then your entry is FREE! All others are asked to contribute $50 to the production of the parade.
The Broadway Halloween Parade is also still looking for a few volunteers. Volunteers receive a t-shirt, dinner and a backstage look at this boo-tiful parade!
