Halloween Parade

The Halloween Parade down Main Street Harbor Springs will start at 1:00pm. The parade starts at the corner by the Methodist Church and ends in front of Johans. Please do not send students dressed in costume, they will change and walk down after lunch. We have extra staff helping children with costumes.

Parents, please remember that this is a fun K-4 grade parade. Costumes should not contain gore, or weapons (even plastic). Costumes should also be culturally appropriate. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Fairbanks or your students teacher.
