York Traditions Bank and Eventive, the event planning and production division of the York Revolution, announced today that registration is open for the 69th edition of the York Halloween Parade. Commercial and non-profit organizations, baton groups or dance studios, and individuals and small groups interested in participating in the October 28 event may now register here.
Sponsoring the parade for the fifth year, York Traditions Bank is once again distributing registration fee waivers for 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations at its branches.
“For a lot of people in York — and certainly for all of us at York Traditions Bank — the Halloween parade is a treasured tradition, said Eugene Draganosky, President & CEO of York Traditions Bank. “It’s also a great opportunity for non-profits and community-focused groups in our area to shine a spotlight on their commendable work. We are very pleased to support what they do for our neighbors and to make that spotlight free to them.”
Organizers have named Lou Rivera, chairman of Latinos Unidos, the grand marshal of this year’s parade. A native of Camden, N.J., Rivera grew up in Worcester, Mass., and returned to New Jersey to attend Rutgers University. He moved to York nearly three years ago and has quickly made his mark on his new community, leading such initiatives as Puerto Rico Se Levanta, the 21-day giving drive that raised more than $15,000 to support relief efforts in Puerto Rico, and playing a pivotal role in the creation of First Friday Latino in the city.
The parade will again begin at the York Fairgrounds at 2:00 p.m. and travel east on Market Street from Richland Avenue to Broad Street in downtown York. The route will feature a number of vendors as well as a Family Fun Zone, presented by CGA Law Firm, on the corner of Market and George Streets from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The Family Fun Zone will include games and inflatables for the kids, music, and more!
