The celebration kicks off with the 3rd Annual Halloween Decorating Contest for Bethel Park residents from Saturday, Oct. 23 – Sunday, Oct. 31.  One winner will be selected per ward.  To nominate a home or for more information, email or call 412-831-6800, x211.

The 2nd Annual “Spooktacular Parade” will be held Saturday, Oct. 30 at 9 a.m. once again featuring two parade routes (North & South) with fire trucks, police cars, Public Works vehicles, a TCS-EMS ambulance, antique cars and more travelling throughout the Municipality providing candy to kids of all ages!

“We did shorten this year’s parade routes a bit to accommodate parade participants and spectators. Last year’s parade ran around three hours; this year’s will be a bit shorter but equally fun for our residents,” said Christian.

North and South Parade routes are below.  The Municipality will also feature a Facebook Live of the parade on the Municipality’s Facebook page.

And, Trick-or-Treating will be held on Sunday, Oct. 31 from 6 – 8 p.m.

Residents wishing to participate in trick-or-treating should turn their porch lights on; those not wanting to participate can leave their porch lights off.
