There Were All Kinds of Birds, Bats and Bugs…Oh My!! Check Out Our Masquerade Parade Halloween Highlights!

Thanks to ALL Who Participated and Supported D&R Greenway

All of the fun was in support of D&R Greenway’s mission to preserve land
and enjoy the beauty of our 400+ acre St. Michaels Farm Preserve in Hopewell.

Special thanks to:

Community gardener, Ali Parrington and her family
for creating scarecrows that added a special touch to the parade.

The Bristol Myers Squibb employees who gave an extra helping hand.

 

Floats designed by local organizations evoked their mission and the event theme:
“Birds, Bats and Bugs… Oh, MY!”

The theme honors Nature’s small but mighty pollinators, whose work is essential to life itself.
