Antwerp seeks entries for Halloween parade
Monday, September 30, 2013 11:05 PM

ANTWERP – Autumn weather has arrived and that means that Halloween is fast approaching. The Antwerp Chamber of Commerce and Antwerp Village Council are making plans for their annual events.

The council has scheduled Trick-or-Treating for Saturday, Oct. 26 from 5-6:30 p.m. The chamber has scheduled a parade for 2:45 in the afternoon, prior to Trick-or-Treating.

In past years, the parade has consisted of costumed characters. This year, the chamber is making a special effort to expand the parade and are inviting the entire community to participate. Everyone is encouraged to decorate something – a car, truck, lawn mower, bicycle, tractor or whatever can be thought of for the parade. These entries will not be judged, but will add a lot of interest and fun to the event. The costumed characters will be judged.

Line-up for the parade and location for the judging will be announced at a later date as these details have not yet been confirmed. Watch the community billboard at the corner of River and Main streets and this newspaper for more information.
