Hamilton’s Halloween Parade was a Treat

Hundreds of kids of all ages gathered by the Hamilton Post Office Wednesday for the afternoon’s main event – the Halloween Kid’s Parade. It was everything a Montana town could want.

The parade (and we use the term loosely) started a little after 4 p.m. and the crowd followed the slow-moving KLYQ “ghost van.” The costumed characters filled Main Street from sidewalk to sidewalk. After a short two blocks, the crowd split – lining up at most of the Main Street stores for some trick or treating, while Halloween sounds boomed out of the downtown speaker system.

Hamilton Downtown Association officials estimated the crowd at several hundred people – kids and their parents. It was a chance for the adults to dress up, too, on an unusually warm autumn day. The temperature was about 60 under a partly cloudy sky.

Following the parade, a Harvest party was held at the First Interstate Event Center at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds. And, of course, as night fell, the doorbells began to ring in an area surrounding South 4th Street – a perennial “sweet spot” for trick-or-treaters.

There were lots of smiles and some great costumes at the annual Hamilton Halloween Kids Parade.
