Halloween Parade is On!
Get those floats ready because Woburn is ready to march.
Parade Chairman Bryan Murphy announced Sunday at 7:45 a.m. that the parade will go on as planned.
"The Lions Club was afraid the weather would try to play a trick on us," said Murphy. "It sure did, however, we intend to treat the city to a wonderful parade, as usual."
The parade has never been cancelled in 57 years, added Murphy.
Woburn Police Chief Robert Ferullo told Murphy this morning that the roads are ready, as is Woburn Police.
The Department of Public Works worked through the night to get the roads clear for the parade, said Murphy.
"We hope to see you all on Main Street at 1 o'clock," said Murphy. "Let's enjoy it."
Murphy said he spoke to Mayor Scott Galvin also this morning.
"Mayor Galvin is looking forward to a great day, and hopes the sun will come out at 1 o'clock," he said.
The parade starts at 1 p.m. Sunday. Route 38/Main Street will be closed in both directions from noon to the close of the parade. Anyone parked on Main Street after 9 a.m. will be towed at the owner's expense.
