Parades bringing Halloween fun to Vale, Ontario, Nyssa

Superman and Superwoman are coming to local towns next week, parading through communities with candy and other favors to help celebrate Halloween in a new way.

The staff of Four Rivers Cultural Center is planning the two-hour “pop-up” parades that will feature costumed workers and volunteers, Halloween music and what the center is calling “parade favors.”

The favors will include candy, glow sticks and the emblems of the current pandemic – hand sanitizer and fliers on anti-Covid protocols.

And in a contest, parade-goers are encouraged to dress up . . .
