Sunday’s Parade offers a safe way to Trick or Treat as guests will remain in their cars, which they are encouraged to have decorated in line with the theme. Passengers are also encouraged to create lively signs identifying their favorite bird, bat or bug along with a fun fact about their favorite creature.

Each carload will be given a nature-themed goody bag of surprises, including a newly published children's book. Vehicles will “line up” in the Hopewell Elementary School parking lot and migrate to St. Michaels Farm Preserve at the Princeton Avenue entrance closest to town (Hopewell).

Every parade has live music: this features Bill Flemer and Friends on D&R Greenway’s float. See best-selling cartoonist Patrick McDonnell's specially themed Halloween painting and renowned artist James Fiorentino's Little Brown Bat on display!

This drive-through, reverse parade will be held light rain or shine. If severe weather cancels the Parade, they will host a Zoom party on Friday evening, November 5th, where each group will present their creations and the audience will vote for best “float!”
