A new route for the 65th annual Mays Landing Halloween Parade did nothing to dissuade spectators from lining the parade route on Route 50.

An estimated 4000 to 5000 people enjoyed this year’s parade that featured four high school marching bands including the Oakcrest Marching Ambassadors, the Absegami Marching Braves, the Cedar Creek Pirate Marching Band and the Pleasantville High School Marching Band.

The parade included floats, numerous emergency services vehicles, scores of local young athletic team members, scout groups and hundreds of youngsters making the trek in costumes to emulate their favorite characters.

The event was hosted by the Rotary Club of Mays Landing and Egg Harbor City and sponsored by the Mays Landing Merchants Association.
