Alloway Twp. – The 46th Annual Alloway Halloween Parade is scheduled to take place tomorrow Saturday, October 25th. It kicks off at 7pm but please be sure to remember that the roads in town will close at 6pm. The easiest/most convenient time to get into town is between 5pm and 6pm.
The parade starts on School Lane, makes a left onto South Greenwich, right onto Main, right onto Dorrell, then right onto Friesburg back to Greenwich Street. The judge’s stand is located next to the bank; this location is where both performances will occur and annual contestants for the parade queens wait to find out who is crowned Miss Alloway Halloween Parade Queen for 2014-2015.
For all motorists coming into town, the side streets are marked for no parking on one side of each of them so be sure to abide by this procedure set in place for emergencies in order to have room for EMS vehicles to pass. There is, obviously, no parking on the parade route or around the staging area which is near the municipal building on Waterworks Rd. and Cedar St.
