If you don’t have your Halloween costumes yet, you better get a move on!
Sunday, October 28, is the Southborough Firefighter’s Association’s annual Halloween costume contest and parade. That may seem like plenty of time to get ready. But if you’re striving for a win – based on past competitions – you should invest some time to get creative.
That doesn’t mean you need a creative costume to enjoy the fun. Everyone who participates is rewarded with plenty of treats.
As usual, the line-up is in front of Mauro’s Market with the parade starting at 4:00 pm. (Marchers usually begin convening around 3:30 pm.)
Kids can collect candy inside the Fire Station garage at the end while they pass in front of a panel of judges. (And there’s usually coffee and snacks for the adult onlookers.)
Trophies are traditionally awarded by age groups and themes. Past categories included the most creative costume, scariest, and cutest costume. And of course there’s the coveted “Captain’s Prize”.
Last year, the event was called at the last minute due to rain. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for better luck this year.
