>Lion’s Club Halloween Parade, A 40 Year Old Tradition


The streets of downtown Greenville will be full of ghostly characters and haunted tales on Thursday, October 28 for the Lion’s Club Halloween Parade and Beggars’ Night on Broadway. This Halloween tradition begins at 7pm with the parade of dressed up children, teenagers and adults.

The Greenville’s Lion’s Club has organized the Halloween parade for forty years. This event promotes a safe, family fun night on Broadway. The parade route begins at West Fifth Street to Broadway north to the City Municipal Building where judging will take place and prizes awarded.

If interested in being part of the parade, it is as easy as lining up at West Fifth Street at 6:30pm on October 28. The parade has categories for Tiny Tots Girls ages 0-6, Tiny Tots Boys ages 0-6, Masked Girls ages 6-10, Masked Boys ages 6-10, Masked Girls and Boys ages 11-16, Best Adult Costumed and Best Masked Group. Bring out the creativity and have fun at this festive night out.

Motor units are welcomed in the parade as well. Please contact Nancy McClurg at 670-0301 to enter your unit. As always, no political campaign signs will be permitted.

Beggar’s Night, presented by Main Street Greenville, is a fun, safe event for children ages 4-12 to celebrate Halloween. Downtown businesses line up on the sidewalk along Broadway after the Halloween Parade to hand little beggars’ treats of all kinds. In addition to begging for candy, a haunted house, activity stations and a luminary display of pumpkins at the circle are all set for the event.
