RUTLAND, Vt. (WCAX) - Rutland is preparing to host its annual Halloween parade this year.

Last year, the city called off the parade because of the pandemic. But during a department meeting on Thursday, Mayor David Allaire gave his support in continuing the tradition which brings close to 10,000 spectators and about 100 floats. “Short of a huge spike in the COVID numbers and people being afraid for their health and the city reevaluating that decision, as of right now, the Halloween parade is a go and I’m pretty excited about that,” says, Mayor Allaire.

Last year, the city put on a display with photos of parades past. But nothing compares to the actual night.

The Halloween parade will not take place Saturday as planned due to weather. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 31.
