Participants will start at the Tourist Bureau and walk down Main Street, to end at the Rodd Grand Hotel. A HUGE thank you to the Grand management and staff for providing an indoor space to celebrate!
Following the parade there will be hot apple cider, treats for children, music and award presentations! Parents must accompany children & we encourage everyone to wear light colored clothes for safety.



Fire Safety Tip: Use battery powered candles in your Jack-O-Lanterns: your pumpkins will last longer and you don’t have to worry about the flame!  Never leave a candle unattended!
