All parents and children are invited to come to our 15th Annual Jack-o-Lantern Parade on Monday, Oct. 28th,  2019.  This is a walking parade! We will gather at 6:15 pm at the Visitor Info Centre on Main Street. Dress up and bring your flashlights, jack-o-lanterns (non-motorized wagons are permitted) and join us for an evening of fun while getting some physical activity!

Family Prize Packs for MOST SPookTACULAR!!!

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.

The Jack O’ Lantern parade is held rain or shine. 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!
