Sea Isle City’s 2012 Halloween Parade will take place along Landis Avenue (46th Street to JFK Boulevard) starting at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 19 (Rain Date: Sunday, October 21, 12 noon). Sponsored by Sea Isle’s Department of Recreation, the parade will feature a variety of cheerful floats and numerous groups of enthusiastic walking participants representing local businesses, organizations and civic groups.  There will also be professional entertainers, familiar “characters,” and an abundance of live music performed by The Original Hobo Band, The Pennsport String Band, the Atlantic City Fire Department Pipe Band and the Philadelphia Eagles Pep Band.

Parade participants will be judged in numerous categories, including Walkers, (up to age 12), Walkers (age 13 and over), Families, Clubs / Organizations, and Floats.  After judging is completed, trophies will be presented to the winners of each division.
