RIOC Heard You, Changes Halloween Parade To Satisfy Residents

"We heard you!" RIOC told Islanders in a statement, posted online, detailing the rerouting of this years Halloween Parade. Early plans, designed after a change in venue for the party that follows, were scraped after resident concerns reached RIOC's offices.

Here is RIOC's Halloween Parade Announcement

The parade begins on Saturday, October 26th at 11:00 AM, departing from Capobianco Field (across from 595 Main Street), proceed down Main Street to Sportspark where the Halloween Extravaganza will take place. For more information on the Halloween Extravaganza, click here.

Here’s how the parade will work:

  1. 11:00 AM - Parade organizes at Capobianco Field. (Wristbands will be available for all participants will be given out in the park.)
  2. 11:30 AM - Parade kick-off led by PSD. Parade will head south on Main Street, passing the business district, proceeding to the Blackwell turnaround. Once at Blackwell, parade will stay south on West Road, passing the subway and on to Sportspark.
  3. 12:15 PM - Arrive at and enter Sportspark. Attendees wishing to park strollers will be directed to proceed to a designated area.
  4. Wristbands for late-comers will be available at Sportspark.

All we need now is for the weather to cooperate.
