PARADE REGISTRATION OPEN

 
(September 7): York Traditions Bank and Eventive, the event planning and production division of the York Revolution, announced today that registration is open for the 68th edition of the York Halloween Parade. Commercial and non-profit organizations, baton groups or dance studios, and individuals and small groups interested in participating in the October 29 event may now register at www.yorkhalloweenparade.com.
 
Primary parade sponsor York Traditions Bank, which recently renewed its sponsorship of the parade and other Eventive offerings, is once again distributing registration fee waivers for 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations at its branches. 
 
The 2017 parade centers on the theme “Graveyard Party!” Organizers and participants are celebrating the 68th Annual York Halloween Parade “zombie style.” Participants are encouraged to use their creativity to display their best graveyard party and spook the living, as they cheer you on throughout the parade.
 
Carol Hill-Evans, state representative for the 95th legislative district, will serve as the 2017 York Halloween Parade Grand Marshal.
 
This year’s parade is the fourth sponsored by York Traditions Bank, for whom organizers at Eventive expressed a sincere appreciation.
 
“We are very fortunate to have a partner like York Traditions that is so committed to keeping this great York tradition alive and free as a gift to our community,” said Adam Nugent, director of Eventive. “Their support enables us to focus each year on the fun of the event, rather than the funding for it, and all of York benefits.”
 
The parade will again begin at The York Fairgrounds at 2:00 p.m. and travel east on Market Street from Richland Avenue to Broad Street in downtown York. The route will feature a number of vendors as well as a Family Fun Zone, presented by CGA Law Firm, on the corner of Market and George Streets from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The Family Fun Zone will include activities for kids and a surprise attraction for York County parents.
 
Businesses along the parade route will participate in the revived October tradition of inviting art students from local school districts to paint their windows with original donut monster and donut-scape Halloween-themed art, reflecting a third year of sponsorship from Maple Donuts, which revived the tradition that was largely lost in the 1990s.
 
For the fourth year, Menchey Music is offering $100 off in-store merchandise to the first 10 high school and junior high music programs to register for the York Halloween Parade.
