Join the Rotary Club of Charlotte-Shelburne-Hinesburg for its annual Halloween Parade
​Sunday, October 25, starting at 2:00 p.m. along Falls and in Shelburne Village.
​For over forty-five years Rotary, with support from the Shelburne Department of Parks and Recreation, has held this annual celebration of community spirit and family fun. We want you to join in the fun! Whether safely watching the parade from the roadside, driving a float, or marching in the parade, you and your friends and family are sure to get into the Halloween spirit! This year's Parade will be a little different in that we will not be hosting post-Parade activities (food, contests, etc.). Additionally, we are asking all attendees to mask up (it is Halloween, after all!) and to maintain appropriate distancing by spreading out along the entire length of the Parade route. Our Parade, as always, will feature:
​- floats from local Boy Scout and Girl Scout units;
​- vehicles from our local rescue, fire, and police agencies;
​ - vehicles and floats from local community groups; and
​ - the Spirit of Rotary.
​ For more information or to enter a group or float, please Message C-S-H Rotary on Facebook or send an email to rfox@foxlawvt.com.
​ Please note: In the event of a health concern or a significant weather event, we will update this page with additional information or cancellation. Otherwise, the Parade goes on rain, sleet, snow, or shine!
