Get ready for elementary school Halloween parades Oct. 25

Do you remember walking around your school in your Halloween costume for the parent parade? I do, and I remember thinking it was kind of like a practice for trick or treating. Could I see through my plastic mask? Was my plastic pumpkin large enough to hold all the candy I would be getting? Well, that day for the current Harry S Truman Elementary School and Western Salisbury Elementary School students is almost here. Friends and family may gather in the grass around the front of the buildings and the parade begins 2 p.m. Oct. 25.
