Kiddie Costume Parade and Halloween Fun is back on Riverside

October has arrived and Riverside is excited to be bringing out all the spooks and fun for this Halloween season. Riverside will be holding our annual Halloween Fest & Fundraiser on October 27th, 2018. The activities will begin at 9:30 am with face painting, crafts and treats at Nell & Natasha’s Real Estate Homeward (807A Queen Street East) and will be followed by pumpkin carving and our kiddie costume parade. The parade will begin at 11:30 am and will be guided by the Riverside BIA staff up and down Queen Street. The parade is a great way for families to visit local businesses, walk the streets and get fun treats. We encourage everyone to arrive 15 minutes prior to the parade to receive your trick or treat bag.

Please make sure you are dressed for the weather as the event will take place rain or shine!

We are excited to announce that we currently have 19 local businesses that will be participating in the Kiddie Costume Parade. Check out the Candy Guide to see all the spots we will be stopping at this year (this map is subject to change). 


We had lots of great costumes last year and are looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this year. Check out what everyone got up too last year at the Annual Riverside Halloween Fest & Fundraiser.
