Band, NJROTC Part of Local Halloween Parade


Several school organizations participated in Boyertown’s 63rd annual Halloween parade.

NJROTC and the marching band and color guard were part of the festivities, as were Homecoming King Jake Irvin and Queen Mandy Kalil.

“I thought is was cool how they were all in the same float together”, said Kristin Brintzenhoff, a sophomore. “I think before, they used to be in separate vehicles.”

The band played “Ghostbusters”. They really lit up the performance with strands of white lights outlining the percussion instruments.   

In addition to the BASH participants, other groups had several impressive floats, with characters such as a Snoopy, Scooby Doo and Despicable Me. They made their way from Second and Madison Street through the borough of Boyertown. Twirlers, who had batons with fire, added to the excitement. Even local senior citizens dressed in costumes participated.

The sidewalks were packed with people of all ages, eagerly watching as the spooky floats passed by. A lot of groups participated.

“The parade went on for a really long time,” noted Sophomore Logan Cwikla.
