SHENANDOAH, Oct. 11 — At last week’s meeting, members of the Shenandoah Council heard plans for the Town’s upcoming Halloween events planned for Monday, Oct. 31.

Shenandoah’s Halloween Costume Parade kicks things off at 4 p.m. at the Shenandoah Landing and River Park. Town Clerk Lora Jenkins informed the Council that her photo of last year’s parade made the cover of Shenandoah Valley Monthly magazine. The River Park is located at 315 Morrison Road.

While at the River Park, the Massanutten Regional Library in Shenandoah will host story time at 4:15 p.m., with the costume parade beginning at 4:30 p.m. Bikes, wagons and strollers are welcome for the parade, along with walkers.

After the parade, free hot dogs, drinks and candy will be available while supplies last. The Little Red Snack Shack will be selling food and giving out free hotdogs, and Poppy’s Coffee Camper will be selling coffee and will have hot chocolate. There will also be a Fall scene for pictures.

Trick-or-treating will be observed by the Town on Monday, October 31 with a curfew of 10 p.m.
