Palmyra Halloween Parade

Welcome to Halloween 2020!

Watch the Halloween Parade from the Curb!

Friday, October 30, 2020 at 6:30 PM

The Palmyra Police and Fire Departments will hit the streets of Palmyra in a mini drive-by parade to continue our Halloween tradition.  Thanks to your donations, we’re able to bring our friends from 7 TEXTURES to perform fiery theatrics and glow riders! 

The festivities will leave the firehouse at 6:30 PM and head to the river side of Palmyra by making a left out of the firehouse toward Elm, then cross over Broad on or after 7:30 PM to reach the other side of town.

House Decorating Contest

A seasonal favorite! We love to light up all the houses in town with “spooktacular” decoration displays. Entries will be judged in the evening on either October 25th, 26th, or 27th.   This year, there are two categories, each with a $100 prize!

  1. Over the Top for the families that go all out, such as inflatables
  2. Classic for simple, fun, or elegant decorations
