The annual Halloween Parade sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Clearfield welcomed children in costumes of goblins, witches, princesses, superheroes and various other costumes Tuesday night.
The children marched around the grove area of the driving park and were prepared to show off their creative, beautiful and scary costumes. There was also an additional division for dogs, sponsored by Waggin’ Trains, located in Clearfield.
The theme of this year’s parade was Harry Potter. In addition to the parade, there was also a pumpkin carving contest and arts, crafts, flea market and food in the Expo I building. Announcing and commentating was done by Tim Winters and Bob Day.
