The 2018 Findlay-Hancock County Halloween Parade will take place in downtown Findlay on Tuesday, Oct. 23, beginning at 7 p.m.
The annual event is sponsored by the Hancock Leadership Alumni Association.
The parade is open to groups, organizations, businesses, and schools. Registration is available through Oct. 19. Online registration is required at www.hancockleadership.org/parade.
Discounted early registration is available from Sunday through Oct. 9. Early registration fees are $90 for business/for-profit entrants, and $25 for non-business/nonprofit entrants. Entries received after Oct. 9 will pay $10 more.
This year, entrants will receive a reserved staging location and will be assigned a spot in the parade based on the order of registration.
A limited number of preferred placement packages are available during early registration for $250. The first 20 paid preferred placement groups will be placed in the first section of the parade, immediately following dignitaries and the color guard.
Floats, vehicles and walking groups will be competing against each other for the following awards: Best of Show, Most Original, Scariest, Funniest, Spirit of Halloween, Flag City USA Award, and the John Hancock Award.
