BOUND BROOK–Kill the lights, let the skeletons dance and the candle burn behind the pumpkin’s mischievous grin, because one thing is for sure, it’s Halloween weekend in Historic Downtown Bound Brook.
“We are excited to celebrate the spookiest holiday with entertainment sure to delight young and old alike,” says Council President Tony Pranzatelli. “Our objective is to bring the community together for some good old-fashioned and traditional fun.”
On Monday, Oct. 31, children and adults in costume are invited to join the 6th Annual Bound Brook Halloween Parade, which will stretch down Main Street and terminate at the Brook Arts Center, where participants will be judged for best costume. Line up for the parade will be at 5:30 p.m. in the commuter parking lot at Main Street and Mountain Avenue. Costume judging will be by age group: 0 – 5 years, 6 – 8 years, 9 – 11 years, 12 – 14 years, 15 – 17 years, 18 +, with cash prizes, provided by the Bound Brook – Middlesex Rotary Club. Refreshments will be served in the outer lobby after the costume judging. Participation is free and no registration is required.
On the heels of this family event will be a special one-time showing of the classic silent horror film, Phantom of the Opera featuring Lon Charney with live accompaniment by Bernie Anderson on the Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ. The show, presented by the Garden State Theatre Organ Society, will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets, which are $8 and $7 for seniors and anyone in costume, are available at the door.
