Halloween in Tivoli: Pumpkin Promenade at the Park!

The Plan for HALLOWEEN: Save the Date! Saturday, October 31st 4:30-6:30PM at Memorial Park. (If weather forces cancellation, there will be no rain date.)

Many families in the Village have been talking and wondering about what to do for Halloween this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Village of Tivoli Board of Trustees is strongly discouraging traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating this year.

But . . . The Village of Tivoli and the Tivoli Free Library are organizing an alternative event that we think will be really fun and much safer. We will host a Pumpkin Promenade! A Jack-o-Lantern Jaunt! in Tivoli’s Memorial Park. We will create a one-way trail around the park along which we invite participants to bring and place their jack-o-lanterns at safely spaced intervals. You are invited to show off your creations, to make a display as simple as one jack-o lantern or several, on the ground or bring a folding table or stool for your jack-o-lantern(s) if you wish. Please be ambitious!

Your jack-o-lanterns can compete for the best in various categories: scariest, funniest, most detailed, most clever, cutest and best in show.

Dress up and show off your costumes.

At the end of the trail there will be a prepackaged candy grab-bag which kids can collect. We are soliciting donations of individually pre-wrapped candy at the Clerk’s office between now and Wednesday, October 28th. Please consider helping us by donating a bag of candy!

We challenge you to light up our park with a blaze of Jack-o-lanterns! (But bring please a flashlight as well).

This is how it works. Preregister for this free event by Wednesday the 28th at https://bit.ly/TivoliPumpkinPromenade<https://tivoliny.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=db32a6873991aa156ac2f8920&id=3c59f35ae3&e=2d2a6fbdf1> or call the Tivoli Free Library at 757-3771. Arrive between 4:30 and 5 pm, select a flagged location and position your pumpkin. Flags will be positioned to mark safe spacing.  Judges will stroll at 5:45 and announce category winners by 6. All jack-o-lanterns must be retrieved by 7:00PM.

Participation in this event is limited to Tivoli residents and Tivoli businesses.

Masks are required, and not just the scary kind!!!!
