When the first paraders step out in unison at 7:30 p.m. on October 16, 2021, they will be continuing a tradition that has been going on in Emmaus since the early 1900’s. According to Borough records, the first mention of an official Halloween Parade Committee was October 20, 1919. On October 3, 1921, “A committee of the American Legion was present and informed (Council) as to the holding of a Halloween parade, – A.F. Buck, H.D. Wenhig, H.F. Moatz, W.L. Kratzer, R.S. Stoneback, R.C.D. Rahn, H.A. Knauss. This committee to act in conjunction with the Legion Committee.”

Halloween Parade Chair, Kathy Mintzer, has been leading the parade committee for 25 years and shared, “there have been many, many volunteers working on this parade over the decades, we need to continue this tradition the best way we know how and that’s with dedicated committee members and volunteers.”

All entrants must be registered for the parade. The deadline for registration is October 8, 2021.  For more information, please visit the Halloween Parade Website by clicking on the link below or emailing EmmausParade@aol.com.
