The volunteer witches of the Marion Art Center have been brewing up plans for the annual Halloween Parade around the town on Wednesday, October 31. Everyone should meet at the Music Hall at 4:00 pm. Costumed characters of all ages are welcome to be a part of this fun family event. Under the direction of Hannah Moore, the Sippican Elementary School Styxx Drum Corps will lead the parade, followed by witches, goblins, princesses, ghosts and all sorts of spooky and amusing spirits. The parade route goes south on Front Street, then up Main Street, right on to Spring Street and back down Cottage to the Music Hall where the good, kind witches of the Marion Art Center will hand out surprise goody bags. Come one, come all!
