SANATOGA PA – It’s no longer called a “Halloween party” or “Halloween parade,” but as it does every year the Lower Pottsgrove Township Parks and Recreation Board has planned a party, and a parade for children in Halloween costumes, for Oct. 27 (2012; Saturday) at the upper level of Sanatoga Park, 200 S. Sanatoga Rd., next to the “tot lot” playground.
- This event has been added to The Post calendar.
The board calls it a Fall Festival, instead. Times have not yet been announced on the township website; it is, after all, still several months away.
The event includes hayrides, games, and snacks (usually an apple or bag of chips). And the parade is part of a costume contest in which volunteer judges select the scariest, funniest and prettiest costumes of the day. Advance registration for the contest is required, and in years past kids who wanted to compete can be registered as they enter the festival.
The best way to reach the festival, by the way, will not be via South Sanatoga Road. Instead, follow Park Road, which is on the south side of East High Street across from the Sanatoga Corp. appliance store. It ends at the entrance to the park’s upper level. If you’ve never been there before, you’ll find not only the playground, but a large baseball field, a large soccer field, and a lengthy paved walking path.
