Thanks to everyone who came to this year’s Halloween Parade! It was a wonderful turn out and a great way to meet families, make new friends, and enjoy the neighborhood.

A big thank you to Paul, on the New Chauncey Leadership Team, for putting this altogether.


 

Come join the FUN of the 16th Annual Halloween Parade! Everyone is invited to this event. This is your chance to see our neighborhood kids in their awesome costumes! We will parade on Lincoln St. from Rose St. to the Park. This will allow for great photo shoots!

Once we arrive at the Park, the 48 youngest kids in costume will be introduced to the crowd one-by one, and will receive Goodie Bags with small toys and candy. Hot Chocolate will also be available to all. Hope you and your children can make it!
