If the leaves are starting to change color and people are putting pumpkins on their front porches, it must be just about time for the Moorestown Halloween Parade.
The annual tradition, hosted by the Moorestown Business Association (MBA), returns to Main Street Sunday, with hundreds of children expected to turn out dressed as their favorite monsters, superheroes, sports stars, Disney princesses and more.
Brian Cooper, MBA vice president and chair of the parade committee, said the parade typically draws between 400-500 children—ranging from toddlers to teens—along with their parents and grandparents.
The parade sets off down Main Street beginning at 3 p.m. at PNC Bank and ends at Stokes Hill. Cooper said there will be plenty for kids to do there, including a moon bounce, face painting, caricature artists and, of course, the costume contest.
Prizes will be given out in multiple categories—including Scariest, Cutest and Best Look-Alike—and in multiple age groups.
Cooper said Sunday is forecast to be a perfect fall day: sunny, with a high of 63. The festivities last until 6 p.m.
Main Street will be blocked off beginning at 2:30.
