A special Halloween event is a go in Monroe County. The Barrett Township Halloween Parade takes place this weekend. Although, it's going to look different than years past.
The pandemic is changing the way many fall festivities are being done and that includes the parade. Organizers are calling it a reverse parade, where instead of the floats moving, you will. Participants will drive through the event seeing the spooky floats and receiving candy.
"To know Barrett Township is to know it's a big Halloween community. They love Halloween, we have Scarecrow Vote where we do scarecrow contests... and the parade has always been a highlight and 55 years, we're not planning on missing a year," Peter Pipolo, Chairman of the Barrett Township Halloween Parade, said.
You can join in on the fun this Sunday at 2 p.m. at the former Barrett Elementary School in Mountainhome.
