The municipality of Bethel Park is planning several community activities for Halloween.
Kicking off the celebration is the third annual Halloween decorating contest for Bethel Park residents, from Oct. 23-31. One winner will be selected per ward. To nominate a home or for more information, call 412-831-6800, ext. 211, or email email@example.com.
The second annual Spooktacular Parade will start at 9 a.m. Oct. 30, once again featuring two parade routes with fire trucks, police cars, public works vehicles, a Tri-Community South EMS ambulance, antique cars and more, providing candy to kids of all ages.
“We did shorten this year’s parade routes a bit to accommodate parade participants and spectators,” municipal manager Laurence Christian said. “Last year’s parade ran around three hours. This year’s will be a bit shorter but equally fun for our residents.”
Parade routes will be posted on the Municipality of Bethel Park Facebook page and at www.bethelpark.net. The municipality also will feature a Facebook Live streaming of the parade.
Trick-or-treating is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31.
