45th Annual Alloway Halloween Parade to be held this Saturday, Oct. 26th

One of the biggest events in Salem County each year is the annual Alloway Halloween Parade. This Saturday, October 26th, The 45th Annual Alloway Halloween Parade will be held at 7:00pm in “downtown” Alloway.

The parade was first organized in 1945 by the Alloway Township Civic Association. However, in 1956, the event was discontinued due to a lack of community interest. Later, in 1969, it was revived and has been continuous ever since.

This event draws thousands from all over the East Coast and is an exciting night for this small, quaint village, as well as a cherished tradition. Besides, it is the one night of the year that this small quiet village’s sidewalks are packed with thousands of people. It is truly amazing to watch the small village grow from a couple hundred people (if that) to several thousand or more in just a few hours.

One of the unique and memorable characteristics of this Salem County event is the fact that it is held at night, unlike most other parades and gatherings throughout the area. The Alloway Halloween Parade has been a unique attraction and experience and is sure to be a night of fun.

The parade route has been changed many times over the years so the best route is chosen to cover the majority of the town. (See below for the parade route and more information).

Alloway Township’s Halloween Parade Committee spends many hours each year preparing for this much anticipated event, and we’d like to thank them for making the evening possible.
