Lambertville Halloween Parade Committee

2014 Halloween Parade

Welcome to one of the oldest Halloween parades in New Jersey!

This annual event has been sponsored by the City of Lambertville for over 75 years, and is made possible through the generous donations made by local organizations and businesses.

Everyone is invited to join the fun on Sunday, October 26. The parade will assemble on York Street by Mary Sheridan Park at 2:45 p.m. and step off promptly at 3 p.m. The parade will proceed north on Union Street to Perry Street, and east on Perry Street to the Little League Field where the judging will be held.

Only parade participants will be allowed inside the Little League fence. All spectators are cordially invited to sit on the bleachers and observe from outside the fence. Refreshments and a Halloween treat will be available for all participants after they have passed by the judges’ table. Prize winners will be posted at City Hall in the late afternoon on Monday, October 27, 2014. The numbers of the prize winners will also be published in The Beacon. All winners must claim their prize by bringing their number to City Hall before Friday, November 14, 2014
