Hurricane Sandy: Port Chester Re-Schedules Halloween Event

Halloween in the Park, set for Monday, moved to Tuesday at Lyon Park.

Hurricane Sandy: Port Chester Re-Schedules Halloween Event

With Hurricane Sandy threatening our area, Port Chester has decided to re-schedule its Halloween in the Park party set for Monday.

The village says the parade on costume contest has been moved to the rain date, Tuesday, Oct. 30, at Lyon Park at 5:30 p.m.

However, because of the uncertainty of the storm, the Port Chester Recreation Department says to watch for updates on Monday in case the weather is an issue on Tuesday.

The free event for children of all ages features prizes for the scariest, funniest, cutest and most original costumes.

Halloween in the Park starts at 5:30 p.m. with a costume parade that will be led by the Port Chester Middle School Band. Line up starts at the Girl Scout House. The costume contest takes place after the parade.

Candy will be given out, but not until after the parade. The event is also sponsored by TD Bank.

For more information on the parade and costume party, call 914-939-2354.
