Just when you thought it was safe to head downtown ...
Moorestown will be overrun by all manner of monsters, superheroes, cartoon characters and athletes this Sunday, as children of all ages celebrate the eighth annual Halloween Parade.
The parade, which is sponsored by the Moorestown Business Association (MBA), begins at PNC Bank at 3 p.m. and makes its way down Main Street to Stokes Hill.
Brian Cooper, MBA vice president and chair of the parade committee, said there will be a variety of activities for kids down at the field, including a moonbounce, facepainting, balloons and a DJ.
Prizes will also be given out for the best costumes in several categories, including "Scariest" and "Cutest," as well as a prize for the best overall costume.
Cooper said they expect a few hundred children, from toddlers to teens, and their parents to come out for the parade.
"It's amazing how many teens we get," he said, adding, "It's a great event for the toddlers. It's long enough, but not too long."
The event goes until 6 p.m. at Stokes Hill. Main Street will be closed from 2:30-4 p.m. The MBA is looking for volunteers to help stuff prize bags with candy and other goodies, as well as a few volunteers to help with judging.
Upload your photos to Moorestown Patch after the parade and we'll feature them on the homepage all day Sunday and Monday.
