A spook-tacular Halloween parade for Glen Cove kids


Monsters, super heroes, princesses and creatures of all kinds made their way through the streets of Glen Cove during the Downtown Business Improvement District’s annual Children’s Costume Parade on Oct. 28.

The celebration began at The Regency Assisted Living with a Scary Story Hour complete with refreshments. The parade provided a safe way for children under 12 to show off their creative costumes and encouraged their families to get in on the fun.

After the parade, the children trick-or-treated throughout the shops of the downtown, while a live DJ, sponsored by Planet Fitness, played spooky tunes including “Monster Mash.”

To provide candy-fueled kids with an outlet, One and Only Dental sponsored a Fun Bus that offered climbing, sliding and all sorts of fun activities in Village Square, while games such as Headless Jack Hole in One and Witches Broom Pumpkin Race were also available.

Members of the Glen Cove High School DECA Club and the Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department generously volunteered their time to help with the day’s events. The parade was sponsored by One and Only Dental, Planet Fitness, The Regency Assisted Living, Petsmart, Glen Floors, Gill Associates Photography and Claynation.
