Calling all ghosts and goblins! The Highland Park Community Council’s annual Halloween parade and festivities will take place Saturday, Nov. 1, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Highland Park.
We will gather at Oak Grove then parade to the fountain, where we will decorate homemade cookies and have snacks.* Volunteers to escort our parade participations and to help decorate cookies are needed.
To find Oak Grove, turn right upon reaching the road at the main entrance of the park, pass the road leading to the Farm House. The little clearing with a bench and sign saying “Oak Grove” is just a few more yards. You can’t miss it, but just in case we will have signs or volunteers to point the way.
The parade will begin shortly after 11 in order to give everyone time to gather.
To volunteer or if you have questions, contact Teri Rucker via e-mail or by phone at 412-482-2533.
*All snacks and cookies will be nut-free.
