Downtown Mansfield will be one very spooky place this Saturday, as Monsterfield Masquerade takes over its streets and sidewalks.
A downtown trick-or-treat with the participation of some 60 center city merchants will take place from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM, and then the annual Halloween Parade steps off right at Noon (parade lineup begins at 11:00 AM). The route will start at North Main and Fifth Street, move south on North Main, turn west on Park Avenue West, and then head north on North Walnut. Parade entries are reviewed and judged.
In honor of Saturday’s events, we’re turning the clocks back two years today as we remember the Halloween Parade back in 2016.
From our post that October:
“The weather was picture perfect; the young ghouls, witches, and goblins were full of excited anticipation; and the mood was celebratory as downtown Mansfield experienced the 2016 Monsterfield Masquerade Parade. Kicking off at the stroke of noon from the corner of West Fifth and North Main, the parade made its way south to Central Park. The route was lined with hundreds of spectators – and 1812Blockhouse was there.
Here’s picture proof – two videos and some images of a wonderful event; click on any photo for a larger version. Enjoy!”
