Halloween is for Kids in Hamilton

The kids will rule the evening Thursday, October 31, in Hamilton.

The children, their parents and older brothers and sisters will gather at the Hamilton Post Office on the corner of Main and 4th at 4 p.m. for the annual Halloween Kids Parade, sponsored by the Hamilton Downtown Association.

KLYQ Radio’s “ghost” van (it’s white, y’know) leads the kids on a two-block parade route on Main Street, with the downtown merchants opening their doors for some safe trick-or-treating (see photo). This tradition has been going on for over 13 years.

Then, at 5 p.m., the Calvary Chapel welcomes the vast numbers of families to their free Harvest Party at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds. The event fills up the First Interstate Event Center to overflowing with games, candy, prizes and lots of fun.

The party used to be at the Daly Elementary School. Since it moved to the Event Center a few years ago, the crowds have grown into the hundreds. It will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

After that, many of the families head out to Hamilton’s welcoming neighborhoods for some old-fashioned, small town trick-or-treats. South 4th Street is usually “Halloween Central” for the candy-starved ghosts, goblins and zombies, but drivers need to be careful wherever they go this Halloween!
