Bethlehem’s ‘spook-tacular’ Halloween parade

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 by The Press in Local News

Bethlehem’s Halloween Parade was held Nov. 5, after being postponed due to inclement weather the previous weekend. The six-division procession began at 15th Avenue and Broad Street, with spectators lining the parade route. A reviewing stand was set up on Main Street for the Parade Committee to select award winners for the annual event sponsored by the City Parks and Recreation Department. The milder, dry weather attracted a healthy mix of participants and onlookers. The parade ended early at the Christmas City Fairgrounds under the Hill-to-Hill Bridge.
