Vermont Arts Exchange (VAE) presents the annual North Bennington Halloween Parade now in its 26th year! Join us at our location at 48 Main Street in North Bennington on Wednesday, October 31st as we celebrate our favorite “Horrorday” with spooky, spirited, festive family fun. Participants will gather at VAE’s parking lot beginning at 3:30pm while the parade steps off at 4:00pm. All are welcome to join the fun as a marcher or cheer on from the sidelines.
The parade ends at Lion’s Park where the Norshaft Lions will be on hand selling cider and hotdogs around a village bonfire. This annual tradition has become a local must see as infants to adults break out their Halloween best, showing off major costume making skills to be in the running for one of the many costume awards. Marchers, monsters, artists, musicians, dancers, drummers, jugglers, friends and neighbors of all ages dress up and promenade through town, accompanied by music. Bring your instruments and join the impromptu band. Dancing and large sculptural costumes are enthusiastically encouraged. A fall favorite for over two decades, this wildly popular event has drawn hundreds of participants and visitors each year.
