CFBC Spooks on Parade set for this weekend

October 24, 2001

Little ghosts, princesses, monsters and firefighters will be seen running up and down the streets and in and out of the businesses of Baldwin City this weekend.

Saturday afternoon is the Citizens for Baldwin City's fifth annual Spooks on Parade, which gives local children a chance to play games, wear their Halloween costumes and trick or treat safely.

"It really gets bigger and bigger each year," Donna Kneedler, CFBC chair, said.

The events start with games at the American Legion at 3 p.m. After the games, Kneedler said a Baldwin City Police Officer will give a presentation on safe trick or treating.

Then children will be able to go to participating businesses in the downtown area, as well as along U.S. Highway 56, and trick or treat. Kneedler said maps will be handed out.

"Everyone should wear a costume, because we kind of parade them around town," she said.

CFBC has continued to sponsor Spooks on Parade, Kneedler said, because the organization wanted to do something for the community.

"We decided to do it so kids would have a safe way to go trick or treating," she said.

There is no age limit for Spooks on Parade and there is no charge to participate. Those who go trick or treating should bring a bag for the candy.
