In less than two weeks from today, we officially celebrate All Hallow’s Eve. But, since it’s on a Thursday this year, many organizations start celebrating the weekend before. Here are a few of the Jersey Shore Halloween 2019 events you might be interested in next weekend.
Jersey Shore Halloween 2019
Ocean City Halloween Parade
Next Thursday night (October 24th), come to Ocean City for their 72nd Halloween Parade. The City partners up with the Exchange Club of Ocean City to put on this event every year. The parade down Asbury begins at 7 pm. Bring a lawn chair with you and make sure to get there a little early. Scout out a good location along Asbury between 6th and 11th Streets to watch the parade march by. If you, your church group, company, boys/girls club or philanthropic organization would like to take part in the parade, sign up online here. Registration is free and everyone’s welcome. But you only have until October 22nd to do so. After that, registration closes for this year.
Lucy the Elephant Trunk-or-Treat
You haven’t been to a trunk-or-treat until you’ve been to Lucy the Elephant’s trunk-or-treat event. Who better to host such an event than THE elephant herself? From 10 am to 5 pm on October 26th and 27th, children aged 12 and under are invited to visit our beloved Lucy for free. Every half hour, tours of our perky pachyderm take place. Kids tour for free with a paid adult accompanying them as long as they wear their costumes. Purchase your tickets at the gift shop. The last tour heads out at 4:30 pm.
Margate Mothers’ Halloween Parade
Finally, Margate’s Halloween Parade takes place on October 27th. Dress up to watch. Dress up to participate. It’s all for fun. The parade route has not been announced yet. So, keep your eyes open for that announcement soon.
Wherever you decide to celebrate your Jersey Shore Halloween this year, please do it safely. Bring flashlights with you and wear lighter colors when possible. If your child’s costume is dark in color, consider adding reflective tape to their outline to make it easier for automotive traffic to see them in the dark. Stick to the sidewalks when visiting house-to-house. Check your children’s candy before they eat it. Happy Halloween!
