Come out and join the Pack for the Annual Derry Township Halloween Parade.  The Parade will be held  on Tuesday, October 22nd and will begin at 7pm.  We will meet in the staging area, The Hershey Company employee parking lot on Caracas Avenue.  Please show up by 5:45pm for Pizza and Hot Cocoa prior to the parade. 

Wear your Halloween Costume or your Cub Scout Uniform.  Bring a flashlight as it helps locate the candy if you drop your bag.  The Hershey Company provides the candy for each group to throw (toss) to the parade attendees.

Route:   Down Caracas - past fire station,  Right turn onto Valley (at bank),  Right turn onto Chocolate Ave - thru square - and finally a Right onto Ceylon Ave to re-enter the parking lot.

Scouts - please find your Den leader when you arrive so they can get an accurate scout count.

Parents - parade lasts for about an hour.  Since it takes a while to flow out of the parking lot at the start of the parade, you can expect us to be back to the parking lot around 8:15 - 8:30.   MAKE SURE you check-in with your DEN LEADER before taking your child home!  Safety first!
