Parade in the Paper

Parade in the Paper logo

Because the Halloween parades were canceled this year in Beacon and Cold Spring due to the pandemic, we asked readers to submit photos of themselves or their children and pets in costume so we could approximate what we’re missing this year — and, thanks to our sponsors, we threw in a few prizes for those humans and animals who most impressed our judges. Stay safe and enjoy.

  1. Thank you so much from the Darhansoffs. We were impressed with all the costumes and surprised and excited to be chosen as the “funniest” winner.
