This crazy year of the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the changing or outright canceling of many events, but one that is still scheduled is Buffalo’s annual Monster March.
This year’s march will be happening on Friday, October 30th, according to a release from the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce.
Kids and parents are asked to begin lining up at the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum for a 4pm start.
Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Schueler has asked that those marching to wear masks, and those passing out candy to wear masks and gloves.
The annual Halloween tradition features children (and even some adults) dressed as their favorite monster, superhero, cartoon character or whatever they choose who then stroll through downtown to trick-or-treat local businesses for candy and other goodies in a safe and supervised setting.
Once the march begins it will head south on the west side of Main Street to Angus Street where they will cross Main Street and head north to finish at the chamber of commerce.
Businesses interested in having a booth downtown during the Monster March should contact the chamber of commerce.
