Last night was the Danville Halloween parade, and anybody who’s anybody in Danville was there, duh.
That includes the Bowmans and the Wislocks! (We happen to have spots near each other’s so I know this for a fact- and yes, in Danville, you have parade route “spots”)
It was good – we couldn’t stay for the whole thing because my niece (photos of her in her Halloween costume coming next week!) was getting restless and cold, but the good portion we saw was really good.
Lots of floats and plenty of goodies for everyone!
Here’s some highlights from our photographer:
And my personal favorite highlight comes from Brandt Bowman, whose dad, city editor Bill Bowman, took this photo of him eating the munchkins given away by Dunkin Donuts.
Other people expressed frustration at the technical glitches surrounding the launch of the Health Insurance Marketplace on healthcare.gov, saying they were not able to access the site: Ken Dieffenbach Jr. “This is what I got around 5am today. I went back and it was running, but they failed to identify my identity by me answering the security questions. Then I was given a code to call Experian to answer them via the phone. I can’t imagine the plans are any cheaper than what I have now and will cross the bridge once my premium is raised (which is inevitable at this point I’m certain!)”
On a lighter note, the preview video from the Elysburg Haunted House has been popular, with people gearing up for this annual Halloween treat:
If you’ve checked out the Daily Item’s local page today, you’ll notice that Halloween parades in the area are in full swing. There’s nothing that brings us small-towners out like the promise of marching bands and the sight of cute little Cub Scouts marching in costumes.
Like any good Danvillian, last night I sat along the street and watched the annual parade.
It was a lot of fun. My sister’s dog came along dressed in her bee costume (See the attached photo- her name’s Snowball!)
I don’t know what it is I enjoy so much about the parades, but I think it’s the entertainment value.
You can relax and enjoy a nice family-friendly feature for nothing but the dollar or so you put in the parade committee’s collection tin at the beginning of the parade.
Where else can you get that kind of deal?
Plus, you get free candy.
I myself collected a respectable amount of Tootsie Rolls last night.
What is your favorite Susquehanna Valley Halloween parade? Why?
I haven’t been to any other ones, but maybe if you convince me, I’ll check out a new one next year!
