There was a chill in the air this past Sunday, Oct. 26, in Shelburne, and it wasn’t just from the autumn weather. Freaky floats and creepy costumes flooded Falls Road for the annual Charlotte-Shelburne Rotary Club Halloween parade. Shelburne Rescue and Fire Department were all smiles, handing out candy to an eager, costumed crowd.
Rotarian and float chair Judy Christiansen chose four non-Rotarian volunteers from the surrounding towns to judge the float contest.

With a lot of hard work by the Parks and Recreation, post-parade festivities filled the Town Center Gym. Some kids played games while others just filled their trick-or-treat bags with goodies. The turn-out for the costume contest was spook-tacular! A special thanks goes to the judges given the difficult task of choosing winners from the roomful of adorable contestants, we certainly wouldn’t have been able to!
