Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls haunted the streets of East Manchester Township on Sunday for the annual Mount Wolf Halloween parade. Huge crowds packed sidewalks to see the ghostly sights during the 48th year for the event. Parade floats began the trek down North George Street at the intersection of Sunset Drive before heading into downtown Mount Wolf. About 50 groups entered their floats into the parade. The number of entries is slightly down from year’s past and organizers believe recent rainy weather is to blame for the decrease. Despite the smaller turn out the parade went off without a hitch.
Mike Starner, Susquehanna Lions Club parade chairman says, “It’s a community parade, the borough and townships all donate money. The lions club does the organization, the fire departments and police departments support it and local businesses. It’s truly a community event.”
Furry friends from the York County SPCA strutted their stuff and wagged their tails for the crowd during their first year in the parade.
