Chestertown, MD — Thanks to Washington College students and the Chestertown Lions Club, Draculas, Frankensteins, and fairy princesses will parade down High Street once again in the town's Halloween Parade. Washington College Student Government President Katherine D. Mahoney says, "We're very interested in keeping good relations with the town, so we jumped at the chance to work with the Lions Club to bring back the parade."
The parade takes place during Washington College's Fall Family Day. "We wanted to focus on the family and bring together all facets of the community on every level. The parade has a lot of support in town," says Mahoney.
The parade kicks off at 3:00 p.m. on Oct. 30. At 4:30 p.m., parade watchers and participants are invited to a Town and Gown reception in Fountain Park, hosted by the Parents Council of Washington College. Among those parading will be children from day care centers; elementary, middle, and high school students; college students and sports teams; and the Washington College homecoming courts and class floats.
