Pandemic will not stop Halloween celebration

Join the BHCA Social Action Task Force & Friends for an afternoon of safely distanced spooky fun!  On Saturday, Oct. 31st from 3 – 5 p.m., Sumpter Park will transition into a parade route for costumes of all ages. Please arrive at the intersection of Laurens and Linden streets at the time of the youngest member of your parade posse

  • 3:00 – 3:20, little kids (infant through pre-k) 
  • 3:30 – 3:50, 6 – 10-year -olds
  • 4:00 – 4:20, 10 – 14-year-olds
  • 4:30 – 4:50, 15+year-olds

After you complete the parade and show off your goofiest grin at the photo booth, visit local organizations stationed at community tables throughout the park. They’ll have ghastly giveaways, and you’ll have a chance to vote on which table is the most festive!

PLEASE NOTE: Good Physical Distancing Measures will be in place! There will be a wide, clearly marked route around the park.  Candy will be handed out in bags at large intervals around the park, and groups will be let into the parade at safe distances. Please do not stick around after it ends.

To make all this happen, we need volunteers! If you have time, and a costume, on 10/31, c by Oct 22 to let us know you can help.  If you would like to support financially, visit here and select “Social Action Task Force” from the “What would you like your donation to support?” dropdown menu.
