MPCA Children’s Costume Parade – October 17th @ 1pm

The MPCA is excited to announce our first ever Children’s Halloween Costume Parade! Unfortunately this is not like our normal MPCA Children’s Halloween party but unusual times call for unique solutions!

When: October 17th at 1pm (Rain date 10/24)
Where: The walking path across the street from Hawthorne Elementary School.

This costume parade is open to ALL Minerva Park kiddos under the age of 12.

Please register your kids that would like to participate in the parade.
Link to sign up here:

You do not need to register each individual child on the sign up sheet. Simply register your name or your family’s name and the number of kids that will be participating.If your family is a current member of the MPCA, your child(ren) can receive a snack and a “to go” craft at the Children’s Halloween Parade, simply select “yes” on the MPCA membership question on the sign up.

We will have three special judges from the village to select winners for our costume contest. There will be a variety of categories to compete in and prizes for the winner in each costume category. Neighbors are welcome to come and watch the parade. We ask that you follow state mandated safety guidelines and wear a mask and social distance. Parking is available in the lot in front of Hawthorne Elementary School. We are also hoping to secure a Food Truck that will have Hot Dogs, soup and Halloween themed sweet treats set up in the Hawthorne Elementary School Parking lot!

  1. This is Diane Marshall and we do the carriage rides at Christmas for Minerva Park. Trying to find out if events we have had planned are still on. You may contact me thru email at, or telephone or text at 937-689-8553.

    Thank you for letting me know.

    • Good morning, Diane!

      Due to COVID, we are not going to do the carriage rides this year. We are all very sad but believe that this is the best decision at this time. If anything should change, we will certainly reach out to you and let you know.

      Thank you so much and have a great day,
