Halloween Parade

Last night my youngest and I attended our local town’s Halloween Parade.

I love a parade, who doesn’t. Especially when there is chocolate involved.

This little cutie was waiting patiently in line to enter the Civic Center.

As was this one. I so wanted to just squeeze her little cheeks.

She is keeping an eye out for this guy:

who scared her silly. Everytime she saw him she climbed her mother until she could hide her face in her hair.

I know a college girl who still does that.

This is what the room looked like from the door. Rows upon rows of tables set up for the kids to trick-or-treat.

The event was supposed to have taken place along our Riverwalk and in our park, but there was a 60% chance of rain, so indoors we went.

The businesses in town all donated thier time (and candy of course) so that our kids would have safe place to be. This table was set up by the publishers of our local paper.

Hey, Miss Patsy.

The boys in blue were also there passing out candy to the kids and making us all feel safe.

Isn’t she adorable. I also like the Spidey costume. This kid was a real trooper. It was rather warm inside with all those people generating a lot of heat.

Several of the adults got into the spirit too.

This was one of the table decorations. I love it!!

This is one of our local librarians. Pippi Longstockings. I love this book and it so took me back.

This gentleman is dressed up for two reason. Halloween, of course, and Mardi Gras. He is a representative of a group of local people who have gotten together to promote a family-friendly celebration locally.

I love the head dress. Go Indians!! (a shameless plug for the local football team).

We found this little fireman on the last row. He was all tuckered out from candy-gathering. I sooo wanted to join him.

 

In the end, we had a great time. The kids got candy, in a safe environment, and the local businesses deserve a huge thanks from all of us who attended.

Thanks you guys!!

Y’all Come Back Now.
