Costumed children to participate in Summerland’s Howloween Parade

Second annual event will be held on Oct. 27 in downtown Summerland

Ghouls, goblins and other spooky creatures will parade around downtown Summerland for the second annual Howloween Parade on Saturday, Oct. 27.

The parade is organized Dave Simpson to show off children in their Halloween costumes.

Last year, around 140 children joined the parade downtown.

The leaders of the parade were members of Summerland School of Dance doing a dance routine to the music of Thriller by Michael Jackson, behind disc jockey Alpha Woldenga seated in the box of a vintage pickup truck driven by Casey Campbell.

After the parade, the thirsty participants gathered at the finish at Victoria Road North and Jubilee Road for hot chocolate, served by Nesters Market.

Cookies were supplied by IGA and candy was supplied by Julie Paton of Back-In-Line therapy.

This year’s Howloween Parade will be held Saturday, Oct. 27 beginning at 4 p.m.

Main Street and Victoria Road North to Jubilee Road will be closed beginning at 3:30 p.m.

The lower section of Main Street will be the gathering area for the various groups who are participating.

Pylons will be placed in the middle of the street with their names on them.

Parade marshals from the Kiwanis Club will be present to help participants to find their groups.

There is a good choice of costumes and make up to be found at Your Dollar Store With More and they will give you 10 per cent off if you say you are in the parade.

Next year the Howloween Parade will be produced by Summerland Kiwanis Club.
