About the Palmyra Halloween Parade Committee

The Halloween Parade Committee is a small group of volunteers who work together to fundraise, plan, and implement the annual Halloween parade among other activities. While we are open to new ideas, volunteers to create and implement events (new or old) are always needed! The group is not responsible for trick-or-treating decisions in Palmyra, NJ.

Questions? Volunteer? Email palmyrahalloween@gmail.com by August 2022.

DRIVE-BY HALLOWEEN PARADE | COMPLETED

For the children’s safety, our COVID-safe mini-parade continued from last year and started on SAT. OCT. 30, 2021 around 6:30 PM for around 2.5 hours. During this event, you could visit our facebook page @palmyrahalloweenparade to get live status updates. Many thanks to the Palmyra Police, Palmyra Fire Department volunteers, LED theatrics, and glow riders from 7Textures for making it possible! We hope to bring back the traditional Broad St. parade activities in 2022.

All cars had to have a family friendly theme, decorate their trunk accordingly, and hand out candy to all attendees. Ghouls and goblins of their own could trick-or-treat for free! For those without a trunk, there was a $3 per child admission fee to the PIA to help support their activities that benefit the community. RAIN DATE: OCT. 23, 2021
