A week to save the Maple Leaf Parade of Costumes?

October 19th, 2015 · 6 Comments

It’s now less than two weeks before Halloween (Saturday, Oct. 31st) and we  have had several readers inquire:

“What about the hugely popular Parade of Costumes?”

Rachel, for example: “Hi. Do you know when the Halloween parade will be this year?”

The answer is no. At the moment there does not appear to be a plan for what would be the Seventh Annual Maple Leaf Parade of Costumes, an event that has drawn hundreds in the past.

Donna Hartmann-Miller, the ubiquitous force behind the parade for the past six years, emails that she can’t handle it this fall.

“I had put out a call for someone to take this over this year, but no one has stepped up for it. Typically it happens the Sunday before Halloween, but it would be up to the person who wants to organize it.

“If anyone contacts me, I will put it out on our email, on our Facebook page, there will probably be a poster at the park kiosk and I assume you will put it on Maple Leaf Life, yes?

“If you hear of anyone interested, they can contact me and I will tell them what was done in the past and provide whatever support I can.”
