The Bloomfield Halloween Parade is a beloved tradition; a nighttime parade, with marching bands in Halloween costumes, floats, politicians and businessmen tossing (wrapped) candy to the kids, and assorted other high spirits (take that as you will). This is the 43rd year of the parade, produced by the Bloomfield Citizen’s Council. It’s a lot of fun, and you don’t even have to worry about parking — it’s an easy stroll from Polish Hill, just over the Bloomfield Bridge.
The parade takes place on Thursday October 27 and starts at 7:30 p.m. The parade route starts at West Penn Hospital and goes to the bridge. It lasts about 2 hours in total.
