12th Annual WaHi Halloween Parade

BOO!  It’s the month o’Halloween, and the WaHi Parade is one of the reasons we love living in this neighborhood! This is a free, volunteer-led event on Halloween, that has grown in size exponentially since its inception. Our last parade had over 500 participants.  We are looking for volunteers to help out! I promise you the time commitment is LOW – we might meet once before the event, and we coordinate most of it by email. And aside from some basic logistics/troubleshooting leading up to the event, and on the evening itself, the parade really runs itself on the energy of this amazing neighborhood.

Most of our core group members have older kids now, and so we are looking for parade-lovers with younger ones who might want to step in and help (yes – it happens – those little ghouls and goblins grow up and like to fly their own brooms).
If interested – please contact me off-list! ksussman at mail that starts with g dot com!
No experience necessary – just a genuine love of Halloween and being with hundreds of neighbors in the park, in costume, after dark!
