It takes a Few Great Neighbors to magically make a Parade happen overnight.
Thursday evening the volunteers on the Halloween Parade Committee looked at the forecast and knew it would be too wet and cold for the kiddos (and let’s face it, the parents and grandparents, too!) to parade in our costumes. Luckily our good neighbors at Graland Country Day School generously opened their doors to provide an alternate INDOOR gathering for our Hilltop Picnic and Parade!
The Halloween Parade Committee including Lisa Glauser, Sheila Pitto, Molly Coors, Anjali Nanda, and Cristina Schmidt worked hard to update the signage, get the word out, and regroup with our vendors and sponsors. Everyone met early on Sunday – anxious and excited to see how many neighbors would show up. All were so happy to have a great crowd, kiddos enjoying the games and plenty of pizza for everyone. Our City Council Member Amanda Sawyer and her family, along with Milt and Sue Bollman helped pass out pizza to the hungry monsters, dinosaurs and unicorns.
We collected and delivered over a 100lbs of canned goods for donation to the Denver Rescue Mission.
We are so GRATEFUL to have such GREAT NEIGHBORS!
This annual family event is sponsored by your Cranmer Park/Hilltop Civic Association and District 5 Denver City Council Member Amanda Sawyer, along with these generous neighborhood sponsors (please say thanks for all their help!):
