Halloween events set to scare in local towns

Festivities for Halloween have been scheduled for Saturday Oct. 31 in both Warrensburg and the town of Chester.

In Warrensburg, the traditional Halloween Parade through town will form at 4 p.m. in front of the Warrensburg Health Center. Soon after, it will proceed down Main Street to Stewart Farrar Ave., ending at the Warrensburg Elementary School, where costumes will be judged and awards distributed. The parade is sponsored by the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co.

In Chestertown, the Chester-Horicon Youth Commission is holding a Halloween Parade and Haunted House on the same day. The parade will line up at 3:45 p.m. at the old Chester Firehouse on Church St., step off at 4 p.m. sharp and march, weather permitting, to the Chestertown Municipal Center, where refreshments will be served.

The haunted house and games will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Dynamite Hill recreation area off state Rte. 8. New this year is a non-scary half hour beginning at 6:30 p.m. for the younger folks, and the regular spooky, haunted house - with full fear-factor - will begin at 7 p.m.

Everyone in the community is welcome to attend, from the young to the young at heart, Chester-Horicon Youth Director Nicole Howe said. For details, contact Howe at 494-7725.
