The 2017 Halloween Parade is sure to be a hauntingly good time for all.
The 83rd annual Halloween parade in Corydon will be held on Saturday, Oct. 28, again this year organized by the Friends of Corydon Capitol.
The parade will begin at the Harrison County Fairgrounds at 6:00 p.m. and will travel north on Capitol Avenue to Walnut Street, where it will turn west, travel to Water Street and then head back to the fairgrounds.
Parade entries can start arriving at 3 p.m., and those that want to be judged for awards need to be at the fairgrounds no later than 4:30.
Entries can be judged in eight categories: Grand Marshal’s Award, President’s Award, Best Float, Best Performing Group, Best Vehicle Entry, Best Animal Entry and Best Political Entry (Democrat, Republican and school board).
All entries need to be at the fairgrounds no later than 5:30 p.m..
Parade organizers remind participants that candy and other items are not to be thrown from floats or vehicles in the parade.
Sponsors of the parade include Dr. Lisa Clunie, Kellum Imprints and the Harrison County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
That afternoon, beginning at 4 p.m., there will be a costume contest at The Bicentennial Park.
