Kids of all ages are invited to experience a family-friendly drive-thru Halloween Parade honoring Nature's small but mighty ambassadors, the pollinators who are essential to life itself! Support Local! Masquerade passengers remain in their cars while moving past exciting stationary nature floats designed by local organizations highlighting how their mission supports the event theme. Decorate your car and decorate yourself too, as your favorite... Birds, Bats and Bugs… Oh, MY!
Each car will receive a nature-themed goody bag of Halloween surprises
Vehicles will “line up” in the Hopewell Elementary School parking lot, then migrate to St. Michaels Farm Preserve at the Princeton Avenue entrance closest to town (Hopewell)
Best-selling author/artist Patrick McDonnell, creator of the MUTTS comic strip, is creating an iconic artwork to delight Parade-goers. Live music featuring our very own musician, Bill Flemer of Riverside Bluegrass Band
A WORD ABOUT THE WEATHER
Parade will be held light rain or shine. If severe weather cancels the Parade, we will host a Zoom party on Friday evening, November 5th, each Float Group will present their creations and the audience will vote for best float!
KEEPING OPEN SPACE OPEN IS MORE VITAL THAN EVER!
Ticket sales support the work of D&R Greenway to expand our preservation and stewardship in central New Jersey and keep our trails and preserves open, maintaining a healthy environment and positivity in mind, body and spirit!
Hikers, dog walkers and bicyclists, access St. Michaels Farm Preserve through the Aunt Molly Road entrance on October 31, the Princeton Avenue entrance and related trails will be closed to the public for the Parade.
