Still Time to Register for the Halloween Parade

It's that time.

Pottstown's famous the Halloween Parade will be held next Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. on High Street.

If weather is inclement, the parade will be held Thursday , Oct. 27 at the same time. The decision will be made by 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Additionally, the evening will kick-off with the annual costume contest, to be held at Goodwill Fire Company at 6 p.m. the day of the parade.

This year, here is a fee to register groups to be in the parade and organizers are still taking registrations.

The fee is for businesses and organizations. Families, youth, and individuals still participate free.

The fees are $20 for non-profits (excluding fire companies and marching bands); $40 for business and commercial entities and $40 for political organizations.

The hope is that the addition of this funding feature will ensure the parade can continue in perpetuity as a partially self-funding event.

To register contact the Parks and Recreation office at 610-970-6018.

All proceeds go to the Rotary Club to pay parade costs.

  1. Our experience as a small business owner with this parade was scary. Kids all over our vehicle begging for candy as parents coax them to do so. Cost us over $100 in candy and a lot of anxiety and now Pottstown expects us to pay for the "fun." Our business was a big attraction. Well never again.
