Hamilton’s Halloween Kids Parade is Wednesday

A yearly Bitterroot tradition continues on Halloween afternoon.

The Hamilton Downtown Association will block off part of the town’s Main Street to allow a fairly sizeable crowd of kids and parents to walk from the Post Office to the 200 block of Main, dressed in their best costumes.

The Kids Parade event started in the 1990s and almost always is held on Halloween, whether it’s on a weekday or not. This year, the Wednesday walk will be led again by the KLYQ “ghost” van (it’s white, y’know).

The start time is 4 p.m., which gives parents some time after school to dress up their youngsters and get ‘em over to North 4th Street – the staging area by the Post Office.

Once the kids reach the 200 block of Main, they spread out and take advantage of the businesses that have candy for the trick-or-treaters. It’s nice, safe fun.

After that, there’s a community party at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds and, of course, the regular trick-or-treat routes will be filled with kids.

Drivers, be aware that the South 3rd, South 4th and South 5th Streets in Hamilton are like a huge magnet for costumed characters, and another crowded area is in Stonegate on the east edge of town. Drive VERY carefully!
