Nyack Halloween Parade
October 29, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Don your most daring costume and join us for Nyack Chamber of Commerce‘s frighteningly fun 33rd Annual Halloween Parade on October 29, 2022! (Rain Date: October 30).
Please pre-register for our Costume and Float Contests by October 28 at midnight. All contestants must check in with the judges in Memorial Park, starting at 3pm. Parade steps off at 5:30pm, and winners will be announced directly following the parade in the Main Street municipal parking lot.
New this year – Dress your pets in their most daring or darling costumes, and enter them in our first-ever Pet Costume Contest, which will be held on October 29 at noon in Memorial Park.
Since we don’t want our scaly, furry, or feathered friends to get spooked by the parade crowd, the Pet Costume Contest will be held as a separate event from the traditional costume and float categories.
Judging for pets begins at 12pm in Nyack Memorial Park, and awards will be distributed at 1pm. If you and your pet would like to participate in the parade itself, please return to Memorial Park between 3pm-5pm to prepare for the parade step-off at 5:30pm.

◊ 1st Place: $500
◊ 2nd Place: $250
