NEWTON, NJ – The Town of Newton was aglow on Sat. Oct 31 with Halloween fun. In addition to trick or treaters who made their way through town stopping to homes for goodies, last night there were other activities.
Many local establishments hosted their own Halloween parties. Plus, as a joint effort with the Newton Fire Department and Newton Moose Lodge, the annual Halloween Parade and costume contest took place.
The parade begins annually on Halloween night at approximately 6 p.m. in the parking lot across the street from The Newton Theatre. From there, participants of all ages parade through the center of town along Spring Street and then down Moran Street, with the procession ending in the parking lot on Trinity Street across from the Municipal Building. The Newton Police closes off Union Place, Spring Street, Moran Street and Trinity Street during the parade to vehicle traffic.
Following the parade, attendees can participate in the costume contest, which is broken down into age groups.
The Newton Theatre also hosted the sold out showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Many attended the film in costume, and were treated to props bags and a shadow cast during the show.
