Boo Crew Halloween Parade and Carnival is Saturday, Oct. 22

The Boo Crew will host the Halloween Parade and Carnival on Saturday, Oct. 22. Davis children will celebrate Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 29, trick-or-treating from 5 to 7 p.m. city wide. Later that night, they can head to Turner Falls Park for the Davis Police Officer’s Reserve Association Haunted Forest and Carnival. The carnival starts at 6 p.m. and the Haunted Trails open at dark.
The Boo Crew Halloween Parade and Carnival is Saturday, Oct. 22. Entries will be judged by grade level. The categories will be: Infants/Toddlers (ages 0-3;) Head Start/Pre-K; Kindergarten/First, Second/Fourth, Middle School, High School/Adult, Multi-age Groups (families or groups with several different ages in the group,) bicycles, carts/wagons, motorized vehicles/floats. Each category will have a first, second and third place winner. The parade will proceed in that order, so smaller children will be near the front (after the fire truck and band,) while floats will be near the end.
The theme of the parade will simply be Halloween. This leaves it completely up to you and your child how you wish to dress. You do not need to contact anyone for approval of your costume. Beginning at 2:45 p.m., parade representatives will have a table set up near Hale’s Funeral Home to pass out numbers. If you wish for your costume to be judged, get a number at the table and give the Boo Crew your name(s). Please remain in your designated area while waiting for the parade to begin, so judging can take place.
Plan on lining up for the parade and getting your number in front of Hale’s Funeral Home by 3:30 p.m., with the parade beginning promptly at 4 p.m. We will continue up Fourth Street, turn left down Main Street and then children will finish the parade turning north up Second Street. We don’t have the kids go all the way to First Street because we do not want them walking that close to the train tracks. Parade leaders will gather and wait with kids just north of Iron Wolf Coffee.
If you have a young child in the parade, please be near the end waiting for them if possible. Floats, however, will continue west to First Street and can turn either north or south to unload once they are off Main.
Winners will be announced after the parade at the carnival stage in the park, where prizes will be awarded for each category. You may throw candy from your float. Be careful, we don’t want kids to be running up too close to vehicles to get their goodies.
Remember, after the parade, our Halloween Carnival is at Fullerton Park. It is well lit with lots of room. Make plans to attend, even if it’s just to eat. There will be barbecue, burgers, nachos, soul tacos, snow cones, caramel apple on a stick, teas, popcorn, chicken sandwiches, cotton candy and more. Games will include Bingo, cake walk, jail, basketball, car smash, sand art table, Jenga, fishing booth, petting zoo, free arts and crafts, cornhole, color in hair, a photo booth and more. Shopping options will include boutique clothing and accessories, Scentsy, and light up toys.
If you are interested in having a booth or have other questions, contact D’Andra Parsons at (405) 203-6270 (feel free to text) for information. Booths spaces are $20, the profit is yours to keep. We have ideas if you need them. See you next Saturday, Oct. 22.
