Triangle Neighbors' 14th Annual (2010)
North Halsted Halloween Parade
We’re excited to announce the 14th
Annual Triangle Neighbors' Northalsted Halloween Parade on Sunday, October 31, 2010 at
with pre-parade festivities beginning at 4:30PM.
(NOTE THE EARLIER START TIME!)
The costume parade has
become the city’s most renowned Halloween event drawing thousands of
spectators. It’s a creative, fun and entertaining event for the
entire community that raises funds for our community garden park.
And a Sunday parade means a huge crowd so we’ve extended the
parade route north to Addison. We're
excited to announce Miss Foozie has agreed to emcee the parade. As in past years, we expect to see
costumes from garish to ghoulish-worn by adults, kids and pets. The costume
contest has been a huge success and we anticipate imaginations to run wild again
this year! The theme of the 2010 Parade is "Little Street of Horrors".
