“Come As You Art” Kid’s Costume Parade

Saturday, Oct. 22, 1 p.m.

Rain date: Sunday, Oct. 23, 1 p.m. Participation is free. 

Embrace your Halloween spirit, and join us on the trail for a kids’ costume parade. Costumes should celebrate an art theme whether that be a famous artist, work of art, or artistic style.

Festivities will include a stilt walker, live music, and Owowcow ice cream (any child coming in a costume on the day of the event will get 10% off ice cream).

Meet in costume before 1 p.m. at the “blue bridge” of the Karl Stirner Arts Trail. Parking is available at the lot next to 500 Bushkill Drive, at assorted spots along Bushkill Drive, and at Silk near the pedestrian bridge. It is a 15-20-minute walk from the pedestrian bridge to the blue bridge on the southeast side of the trail.
