Residents of the greater Oak Park community are invited to come watch The Avenue's annual Halloween Parade this Saturday at 10 a.m. The parade will begin at Oak Park Avenue and Pleasant Street, with line-up starting at 9:45 a.m.

Children are encouraged to come to the parade in costume, so that after the parade they can trick-or-treat on The Avenue. And for the especially fearless trick-or-treaters, Scoville Square has numerous spooky, haunted hallways.

The parade will be led by Village President David Pope, escorted by the Oak Park Fire and Police departments.
