The New Canaan Chamber of Commerce will put on its 31st annual Halloween Parade on Sunday, October 28th. The Event begins at noon with families’ gathering in the Park Street parking lot to receive goodie bags (while supplies last!) with a 1PM Parade kick off, rain or shine. The parade will proceed down Elm to Main Street and then loop back up Elm Street, which will be closed to vehicular traffic.
The “Party” at the Park Street lot will include fun for all! Ryyan Taylor aka DJ Hova-T, sponsored by Toddlertime Nursery School, will entertain the crowd.
