Main Street, Bridge Street and Stillwater Road from the light to the Fire Department will be closed to traffic during the parade.
 
Fellow Residents,
 
Rotary understands that the change of date and time of the Halloween Parade is not desirable and inconvenient to many.  The difficult decision was made after discussion between police, fire and emergency services.  Everyone agreed that the event should be delayed due to the weather forecast.  The change was made 100% in the interest of the safety of the participants.  The new day and time were dictated by available resources of PD, FD and emergency services resources.  It was not canceled outright because we felt it was something many of the kids look forward to.
 
We look forward to a fun and safe event and hope that you can join us on Saturday.
