The Upper Perk Halloween Parade starts at Main and 6th Streets, Red Hill at 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 25th, 2015 (rain date is Tuesday, October 27th; beginning at 7 p.m.). The parade follows Main Street through three towns and ends 4th Street in East Greenville.
A team of volunteers has been working on the UPDC donkey, and will be decorating the truck this weekend. Those planning on walking alongside the UPDC truck in the Halloween Parade this year may dress in any costume they like or just show up on parade night and borrow a “straw hat.”
It’s always fun to take an evening walk down Main Street with friends, and the night of the Halloween Parade is no exception. So I hope lots of local democrats will decide to join us in walking in the parade, waving to the crowds lined up along the parade route, and handing out candy to the children we see along the way.
After the parade ends at the East Greenville Firehouse, we’ll walk up Washington Street a few blocks for light refreshments; including cider from a local farm stand and hard cider from a local distributor.
The Democratic Club has been assigned to march in the 7th Division of the parade. The truck must be at the starting position, by Stauffer’s Manufacturing on 6th Street, Red Hill (past Redner’s); walkers are strongly encouraged to be there by 5 p.m. If you want to walk with us, but can’t get there by 5 p.m., you are still welcome to walk with our group, so long as you find us before we step onto Main Street (probably by 6:30 p.m.). Parade participants are encouraged to park in East Greenville by the fire house and take the free shuttle running between the East Greenville Fire House and the parade start in Red Hill (shuttle runs between 4:30 and 5 p.m.) There is very limited parking in Red Hill and NO shuttle will run after the parade. The parade route is approximately 2.5 miles long.
