For many residents of the Nyacks, the annual Halloween Parade is more than just a local event — it's a challenge. Many parents spend days and days (maybe even weeks) getting costumes ready for their children and themselves.
So, when the parade goes through downtown today, watch for the craftsmanship and effort that went into the costumes and floats.
If you've been hard at work at a costume for yourself or your kids, take a picture or some video of the costume and post it here on Patch. Share your scary vision for Halloween!
