The annual Shelburne Halloween Parade, presented by the Charlotte Shelburne Hinesburg Rotary, begins at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28. Floats will line up at Shelburne Shopping Park at 12:45 p.m. The fun continues until 4:30 p.m. with trick-or-treating, carnival games, and a costume contest sponsored by Pierson Library in the Town Center Gym. Bring a canned-food donation for the Shelburne Food Shelf and get a special Halloween prize. Music and snacks at the fire station. For parade details or to register a float, contact Richard J. Fox: 448-0118 or email@example.com.
The Rotarians have organized and run the parade for the last 44 years, and almost every member participates in some way.
The route this year starts at the intersection of Church and Falls roads and will proceed south. Due to construction on Falls Road, the final route is still under consideration.
After the parade, a number of events take place at the Shelburne firehouse, where Rotarians will serve free hotdogs and popcorn. As is the tradition, live music will be played.
The Rotary Club of Charlotte-Shelburne-Hinesburg meets weekly at 7:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Trinity Episcopal Church in Shelburne.
