Seymour Halloween parade marches on


Not even a pandemic will stop the Seymour Evening Lions Club’s 54th annual Halloween costume parade.

The event, which typically attracts hundreds of kids and adults to downtown Seymour, is still slated for 6 p.m. Oct. 26.

Seymour Main Street’s annual Downtown Trick or Treat event, held the same night, has been canceled.

Everyone participating in the parade is asked and encouraged to maintain social distance and wear face masks that cover their mouth and nose, said parade chairman Jerry Roberts.

The parade will begin at the corner of Fourth and Chestnut streets near the post office. Participants will walk south on Chestnut, turn west on Second Street at the library and proceed to the parking lot behind the former American Legion Annex.

After the parade, a costume contest will take place. Judging of costumes will be by age group from infant to adult and by categories, including best pet costume and best group of three.

Prizes will be awarded in each group and category, and treats will be available to all contestants.
