|8th Annual BIA Maskeraid Halloween Parade|
The Carleton Place BIA would like to invite all the ghosts and witches “Downtown” on the Mississippi for the 8th Annual Maskeraid Halloween Parade.
This one of a kind event is sure to be a BOOtiful night in Carleton Place. Dozens of ghoulish floats and costumed participants will be marching down Bridge Street on October 27, 2012. Beginning at 7pm, the parade will kick off at Heritage Mall on Lansdowne Avenue and travel down the length of Bridge Street ending at Mill Street by the Town Hall. Registration forms are now available for anyone who would like to take part in this spellbinding fall event.
Parents, kids and all interested spectators are encouraged to come downtown Carleton Place dressed-up in a favourite Halloween costume to watch the Maskeraid Parade haunt on by. Eerie music, clowns, vampires and goblins will ‘float’ down Bridge Street into the dark abyss.
Residents, businesses and visitors are asked to parade for aid in the exclusive-to-Carleton Place event and bring non-perishable food items to support the Lanark County Food Bank.
Members of the BIA, businesses and community groups of Carleton Place and the surrounding area can help make this fall event a ground-breaking success by submitting a well-decorated float that reflects the fall harvest theme or a Halloween theme.
Brew some extra fun this Halloween through teamwork and build the freakiest float with your neighbourhood. Competition will be fierce this year and participants will be bloodthirsty for the BIA’s coveted awards. Plaques will be awarded for the Best Use of Halloween Theme and for Best Walking. The parade is the perfect opportunity for parents to give their kids a most spooktacular Halloween by hosting a day-long costume party and concluding their festivities at the Maskeraid Parade. Schools, sports’ teams, community/social groups are also encouraged to showcase their creative side with an elaborate float or by creating a Food Bank challenge between other groups.
The BIA is proud to be the Ghostess with the Mostess and looks forward to Meeting everyone Downtown on the Mississippi for the rain-or-shine event.
