Hi all,

I've sent in the application for the 2011 Anoka Halloween parade. The parade will be Sat. October 29th. Step off will be 1:00. The float will be on site by 11:30. Unit number and maps to come. You can also check AnokaHalloween.com for more info.

Since we are posting this on multiple sites, I would like to consolidate all of the signups in one location rather than using each site's mode of sign up. Please follow this link to the signup page.

Contact me with any questions. THANKS!!

Sounds cool!

I've been thinking of getting a Halloween parade started down here in Omaha, but have no clue how to get it going.

well, for us it's because we have the Halloween Capital of the world: http://anokahalloween.com/

the history may be on the page somewhere, but the parade originally started by the town wanting to try to redirect the...energy the towns teens had. Around Halloween the town would have a lot of issues from pranks the teens would pull. The parade curbed that, supposidly, so it became an annual tradition. At some point they got Congress to dub them the Halloween Capital.
As far as how to start a parade, you would probably have to first find a town willing to host it, then try to get sponsors and then participants. I know, I make it sound easy Laughing

Final lineup plan for Saturday:

For those interested in parking at the end of the rout, we will have the float waiting on Washington, within a block or so east of Fifth, between 10:30 or so and 11:00. Neil black truck will be pulling it, so look for that. (This is the same 'end-of'route' spot we met last year.) We can then drive those who meet there, on the float, to the lineup location at 11:00am.

If you do not meet us there, you can meet us at the lineup location, which is in and around the park bordered by Park Street and Douglas Street. This area is just south of Main Street about three blocks west of Hwy 169.

If you are hoping to get into this area and drop stuff off, then park elsewhere, they are closing the roads at noon.

We are unit #12 in Division 4.

You can see the parade route and an Anoka map on the Anoka Halloween website under the Grand Day parade section.

See you all there. Questions? Please post or PM me. Thanks.

I doubt anyone will need this cleared up here, but I felt I should post it anyway. Neil's truck is green Wink
I believe Chad and I are planning on meeting you and the float to catch a ride to our spot.
