BAY HEAD — Residents from all over Bay Head participated in the annual Halloween Parade last weekend, costumed as a variety of characters.
Led by the Bay Head Fire Department, children and families marched with their age groups down Lake Avenue to Bridge Avenue, ending at Centennial Park.
Sarah Erbe, event coordinator for the Halloween Parade, said to The Ocean Star, “We probably had the hottest Halloween Parade we’ve ever had on record,” with the weather reaching well into the 80s. She said it was a phenomenal turnout from the community.
Residents lined the sidewalks and streets of Bay Head to see the many unique costumes from families and children of the community.
Lindsey Lokerson and Eric Bauer had dressed up their toddler, William, as a “Willosaurus” and turned his wagon into a cage from “Jurassic Park.” Both Ms. Lokerson and Mr. Bauer said these events are fun and exciting parts of the community.
Amanda Berardi, dressed as Sally from “A Nightmare Before Christmas” had brought her little ones, Leo and Benny, who were dressed as Jack Skellington and the Boogie Man from the same film respectively. She said, “This has such a small town community feel with the most original costumes you will ever find.”
