Kids, you can start collecting your Halloween candy and show off your costumes a little early this year at Cape May’s annual trick-or-treat and parade Sunday, Oct. 22.

Families are welcome to visit the Washington Street Mall from noon to 2 p.m., where the shops will have candy for little tykes to fill their bags. Munch on your candy as you watch the city’s annual Halloween parade, taking off at 3 p.m. from Perry Street and Carpenter Lane and ending at the Emlen Physick Estate on Washington Street. The community is welcome to participate in the parade, with free registration held at 1:30 p.m. on the corner of Perry Street and the Washington Street Mall. Prizes will be awarded in various divisions, including both kids and adults.
