Costumed kids to swarm Cloverdale merchants Saturday

Get ready for the Halloween Costume Parade, a free, supervised trick or treat parade expected to draw hundreds of youngsters.

'Waldo' hands out candy to trick or treaters during the 2013 Halloween Costume Parade in downtown Cloverdale.

A giant, 1,200-pound pumpkin, the thrilling Surrey Celebration Dance Team, fun, family-friendly activities, plus candy and costumes galore – is there really anywhere else to be this Saturday afternoon?

Downtown merchants are getting ready to welcome hundreds of trick-or-treaters and their parents during the 14th annual Halloween Costume Parade on Oct. 25, which starts off at Surrey Museum Plaza. There are three, supervised trick-or-treat routes past local participating businesses.

The event is organized by the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association, the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce and the Surrey Museum, along with support from Surrey Crime Prevention and other partners.

Festivities begin at noon inside the Surrey Museum for Pumpkin Power. Come in costume, design and take home a Jack-O’-Lantern, make crafts, and enjoy pie. (Admission by donation.) Register for the Halloween Costume Parade from noon to 1:45 p.m.

There’s a prize draw just before the group shot at 2 p.m. Prizes include a variety of gift certificates and more.

For more information, call the Chamber at 604-574-9802 or the BIA at 604-576-3155.
