Family Friday: Halloween Parade
Friday, Oct 26, 6 - 8 pm
Memorial Cemetery of St. John’s Church
1704 Route 25A, Laurel Hollow
Join us at the St. John's Memorial Cemetery (one mile west of the church on 25A) for our annual stroll. Children of all ages can show off their costumes, watch a skit from St. John's Grave Diggers and meet some really nice ghosts... plus have a slice of pizza and (of course) get some candy.
Though it may seem a bit sacrilegious, our Halloween traditions do have some Christian connection. Halloween precedes and is closely linked to two consecutive days on our Christian Calendar: All Saints Day on November 1st and All Souls Day on the 2nd. We remember our beloved deceased - those who came before us - on those days.
Our parade is a good natured and imaginative front line defense against the ghoulies and bad spirits that are pestering those righteous souls interred in our beloved cemetery.
