Tarrytown Halloween Parade

April 15 @ 10:05 am

In the summer of 2002 a meeting occurred between a Tarrytown village trustee and the recreation department about the prospect of holding a Halloween Parade that coming October. A resident, merchant and recreation department committee was formed within a few weeks where the parade idea was approved and scheduled for launch in October.

In October of ’02 that very first Down Town Halloween Parade took place on a Sunday with no rain date for backup. The first parade route was declared from the Washington Irving School track down Washington Street to Main Street to Broadway then to Patriot’s Park basketball court for a post parade party with a D.J.

From ’03 to present the parade route was reverse, assembling and stepping off from Patriot’s Park and ending on Main Street for the block party.

From its humble beginnings, the parade now attracts dozens of floats and over 3,500 spectators plus more joining the block party on Main Street. The Main Street merchants contribute to the evening of fun by setting up outdoor dining to allow spectators a place to eat while enjoying a front row seat to the festivities.
