[Photo Story] State College Hosts Annual Halloween Parade

Happy Halloween, folks!

Local residents lined up on Fraser Street for State College’s annual Halloween parade Sunday night. The State College marching band, cheerleaders, and families dressed up in impressive costumes. Little ones dressed as cute animals and bikers, while older kids were characters from Star Wars and Stranger Things.

Our staffers were on the scene to capture moments from this year’s parade.

The State College marching band was all decked out in its costumes. Many of the individual instrument sections wore matching costumes that were Star Wars, crayon, and Mario-themed.

On the other side, a little boy dressed in his black shoes and basic blues as a member of the Penn State Blue Band.

Even the dogs got in on the Halloween fun. Some were dressed in costumes and others were just there to enjoy the parade.

The creativity from the crowd was amazing. There were princesses and bunnies, milk and cereal, and even a “Top Gun” fighter plane.

As the sun set on another beautiful Halloween weekend night, State College community members got together to show off their costumes. The creativity never disappoints when it comes to Halloween and the Penn State community.
