Today’s the Day: Annual Halloween Parade in Bay Head, New Jersey

Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

For the past few years, it feels like the annual Bay Head Halloween Parade has involved a grim weather forecast of hell and high water.  Yesterday we drove down to our beach house in the pouring rain, which flooded Lake Avenue and didn’t let up as we made our way to the Crab Shack to pick up 100 clams for dinner.

All week long, our little Weather Girl, Maddie, has been watching Weather.com, where just like last year, they forecast rain, rain, rain on Saturday, but sunny and 60 degrees on Sunday for the Bay Head Halloween Parade. Witches, goblins, ghosts and Disney princesses will start gathering on Mount Street in Bay Head, New Jersey, shortly after 11am for the 11:45am parade start.

This year, London and Maddie are hoping to win another trophy as the Butter Bites, their all girl band — coming out of the basement to march along the parade route from Mount Street to the Bay Head Firehouse.  We’ve decked out their sport utility wagon (usually for hauling all of our towels, beach blankets, shovels and buckets to the beach) with their big bass drum and an amplifier for their music, which will feature the Butter Bites singing along with Taylor Swift faves like “Our Song,” “Fifteen,” “You Belong,” and “Teardrops On My Guitar,” as well as Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana’s “The Climb.”

Rex and I are going as the Pirate Parents… a naughty pair of swashbuckling pirates the likes of which Bay Head has never seen before!  Wish us luck… the competition is always tough… we’re not the only family in Bay Head that takes Halloween seriously!
