There was a chill in the air this past Sunday, Oct. 27, in Shelburne, and it wasn’t just from the autumn weather. Freaky floats and creepy costumes flooded Falls Road for the annual Charlotte-Shelburne Rotary Club Halloween parade. Shelburne Rescue and Fire Department were all smiles, tossing candy at an eager, costumed crowd. The Cub Scouts zipped by on a fleet of bicycles, and the Girl Scouts, on a haunted trailer, begged the question “Are you dying for Girl Scout Cookies?” (Of course we are!).

Float design winners:
First Place: “Sweets”
Second Place: “Timberlane Dental”
Third Place: “Shelburne Explorers 4-H”
Fourth Place: “Great Pumpkin Patch”

The turn-out for the costume contest was spook-tacular! A special thanks goes to the judges given the difficult task of choosing winners from the roomful of adorable contestants – we certainly wouldn’t have been able to!
