Hundreds of people stepped out to celebrate Halloween in Shelburne on Sunday for the town’s annual Halloween Parade, hosted by the Charlotte-Shelburne-Hinesburg Rotary Club.
The club partners with Shelburne Parks and Recreation, the Shelburne Volunteer Fire Department, and the Shelburne Police Department. The festivities ended at the Fire Department with a Halloween bash.
CSH Rotary President Elect Dan York says the community looks forward to the parade every year.
“It’s one of those kinds of events that brings people together, it’s just a fun day out,” York said. “Kids get lots of candy, people get to get dressed up, they get to see what’s going on.”
Jerry Fisher, who’s mother helped plan the very first Shelburne Halloween Parade over 50 years ago, participated this year. The Fisher family and friends marched in a Toy Story themed float.
“It’s nice to do this for my mom, this is really why we’re here,” he said. “And it’s good for the kids — kids love it.”
