Of course we’ll have candy and FUN! Visit the Torchlight Parade page for pictures from past parades. Lots of fun costumes be inspired by and to gawk over.

This year every costume is a winner. No official contest after the parade.

WE ARE playing it safe and asking everyone to have costumed face coverings or masks to wear. Better safe than sorry. Oh yes, we’re rain or shine. As you can see in the picture on the left, rain doesn’t stop Torchlight parade goers from parading great their costumes and celebrating Halloween. Northwesterner’s just whip out our umbrellas.
