The 20th annual Village of Tarrytown Halloween Parade steps off from Patriot’s Park at 5:30pm on Saturday, October 29. The parade route runs south along Broadway to Tarrytown’s Main Street. Block party to follow on Main Street with a DJ and live music, outdoor dining, performers, and much more!
The Halloween parade is festive and fun for the whole family. Viewing along the the parade route is free and you can also participate by marching with a theme as a group or float for a chance to win prizes! Registration is required to be eligible for prizes.
Fun fact: the starting point of the Tarrytown Halloween Parade is Patriots Park, which was the historic location of Wiley’s Swamp in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” where Ichabod Crane first spots the Headless Horseman.
In the dark shadow of the grove, on the margin of the brook, [Ichabod] beheld something huge, misshapen and towering. It stirred not, but seemed gathered up in the gloom, like some gigantic monster ready to spring upon the traveler. . . He appeared to be a horseman of large dimensions, and mounted on a black horse of powerful frame. -The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
