Halloween parade at Lincoln Woods
All ages are welcome at a Halloween parade on Tuesday, Oct. 31 at 5:30 p.m. in Lincoln Woods. Parents and children in costume will begin congregating at 5 p.m. and parade (with music) around the back and up through the MBTA parking lot, stopping by local merchants. The list is still forming, but Donelan’s, Something Special, the Lincoln Police and Fire Departments, the Parks and Recreation Department, and St. Vincent DePaul at St. Joseph’s Church will set up stations on our route and pass out candy and/or small trinkets. Participants will eventually make their way to the Ryan Estate, where they’ve been invited to show off their costumes. Participants have permission to park in the MBTA lot to minimize vehicle traffic in Lincoln Woods. Anyone with questions may contact Sharon Antia at Sharon.firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-645-9178.
