Halloween can be a fun time of the year. In virtually every community, youngsters go trick-or-treating on designated nights, begging at homes for a little candy.
Many schools have special parties, especially pre-schools and younger grades, in which children can show off their costumes to their classmates, teachers, and in many cases, even their parents.
One of the amazing things about Halloween are the annual parades.
There are parades in many towns including Tamaqua, Jim Thorpe, Palmerton, and Ashfield.
