Masquerade Parade 2021!

“Birds, Bats and Bugs…Oh My!”

Last year, our supporters helped us imagine a Halloween Parade where the “floats” were stationery and the spectators drove through! Not only did we imagine it, but we did it! We became creatures of creativity …and we’re back to do it again!

We are looking for sponsors and supporters to enable this fun activity for kids of all ages. With your help, we will host a family-friendly, drive-through Halloween Parade highlighting our mission to preserve and care for land and inspire a conservation ethic, now and forever.

SPONSORSHIP LEVELS

As a sponsor, you will receive VIP entrance passes. Reply as an “early bird” by October 20th, and you will also be recognized along the Parade Route and at drgreenway.org!

Please join us as a SPONSOR!

Keeping Open Space Open is more vital than ever!

 

BIRD Sponsor ($1,500) – Includes VIP entrance to the parade for four (4) cars. Simply show your passes and skip the line! Your cars will be greeted by BIRDS, BATS and BUGS … oh, my! And photos of each car’s special arrival will be emailed to you. Each car will receive a special Halloween Goodie Bag with a BIRD theme.

BAT Sponsor ($750) – Includes VIP entrance to the parade for three (3) cars. Simply show your passes and skip the line! Each car will receive a special Halloween Goodie Bag with a BAT theme.

BUG Sponsor ($250) – Includes VIP entrance to the parade for one car. Simply show your pass and skip the line! You will receive a special Halloween Goodie Bag with a BUG theme.

D&R Greenway trustee Patrick McDonnell last year brought his syndicated MUTTS cartoon characters to the Masquerade Parade.

Join us on October 31st!

Masquerade Parade 2021 will happen on Sunday, October 31st, Noon to 5 pm, at St. Michaels Farm Preserve, Hopewell, NJ.

Join us in costume, and “migrate” through the Preserve in your car to see birds, bats and bugs…oh my! Sights, sounds and bluegrass music from Bill Flemer and friends are sure to delight. “Tweet” an invitation to your friends and “flock” to the party!

We expect these costumes from last year’s Masquerade Parade will return for our 2021 theme: Birds, Bats, and Bugs…. Oh My!

A Word about the Weather

This event will be held light rain or shine.
If severe weather cancels our Parade, we will host a Zoom party
on Friday evening, November 5th,
where each group will present their creations and the audience will vote for best “float!”
