LIBERTY, N.Y. (October 4, 2016) – Halloween is just a few weeks away, and the Town of Liberty is gearing up for its annual Halloween Parade. In order to make this event a success, area businesses and organizations are encouraged to create floats to showcase.

“Area residents look forward to the Halloween Parade every October,” said Town of Liberty Parks and Recreation Director Brian Scardefield. “We’re calling all floats to help us make this year’s event the best yet!”

The parade will take place on Saturday, October 29. Lineup will be at 11:00 a.m. at the municipal parking lot by the Liberty Skate Park. Floats will be judged during lineup based on workmanship/construction, appearance, and overall presentation. The parade will step off at 12:00 noon.

Following the parade, more events will take place at the Liberty Main Street Stage. Awards will be presented to contest winners for both the floats and costumes. There will be a Trunk or Treat sponsored by C.A.C.H.E. from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. DJ Storm with music and games donated by Gossip Entertainment will provide atmosphere; and refreshments will include cider and cookies donated by ShopRite of Liberty.
