Our annual Halloween Parade has grown this year! We are partnering with the Vassar College Community to offer more than just a Halloween Parade.
At NOON the Halloween Festival will start in the North Parking Lot of Vassar College with our parade. The North Parking Lot is on Collegeview Avenue in the Arlington neighborhood. The parade will end on the Vassar campus near Raymond Avenue where the real fun begins. We will have costume judging, bounce houses, trick or treating in a haunted house, jugglers, kidditch games, cookie decorating and more.
Before the Halloween Festival starts, there will be a 5K Fun Run at 11 AM. If you are a runner, this is your chance to do your thing in your Halloween costume.
There is no cost or pre-registration required for this event. Come on over and have a great time.
In the case of inclement weather, this event will be held at the Old Main Building on Vassar Campus.
We want to thank Vassar College and it's Good Neighbors Committee, Twisted Soul, the Poughkeepsie Farm Project, the Barefoot Monkeys and the Vassar Kidditch Team for their help.
* Adjustments and discounts will be applied during checkout if applicable. *
