In spite of all of the challenges our community continues to face following the flood, the Lyons Department of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Events is happy to announce that it will host the Lyons Annual Halloween Parade and Festivities on Saturday, October 26th. As fellow survivors of the flood, we certainly understand and appreciate how this unprecedented disaster has affected area residents and business owners and that many of you are not back to your homes or businesses full time.

However, we wanted to offer you the opportunity to join us in welcoming back much of the community (water and sewer should be restored to north Lyons, Lyons Valley Park, and Stone Canyon beginning that Saturday) and take part in a home town favorite event.

Events in Sandstone Park will begin at 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday the 26th with a variety of activities including music, food, face painting, mask making, pumpkin carving, costume contest and more. The parade will begin at 3rd Ave. between Main St. and Broadway (Just East of Bank of the West) at 6 p.m. and will proceed Westbound from 3rd Ave. on Main St., past 4th Ave., turning North on 5th Ave., East on High St. and South on 4th Ave. stopping at 4th Ave. and Main and emptying on Main St. We have included an event poster and schedule for your review.

Immediately following the parade there will be trick-or-treating in downtown Lyons for local families. With current curfews and other restrictions in place, we hope to provide a taste of familiarity and comfort for young trick-or-treaters. We are asking those area business owners who are available and willing, to please support this wonderful community event by keeping storefronts open until 7:30 PM on Saturday, October 26th, and to have on hand some tricks-or-treats for young ghouls and goblins.

Please contact Lyons Department of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Events at email recreation@townoflyons.com for further information.
