Halloween Chester CT

Chester Rotary, the Chester Elementary School PTO and Chester Merchants are collaborating on a fun evening for all in the center of Chester.

All are invited to join the costumed parade from the Maple Street commuter parking lot around 5:30 p.m. The parade will be led by Chester Fife & Drum Corps and will head to go to the center of town where DJ Gary Torello (, who is also known for his monthly karaoke show at the Ivory Restaurant & Pub in Deep River) will be playing music for dancing in the street. Rayna’s School of Dance students will perform. Prizes will be awarded for scariest, silliest, ugliest, prettiest, best super hero, best animal, funniest, (and more!) costume categories (around 6 – 6:15).

Merchants will have treats for kids and some will have “adult treats,” and some businesses will offer other activities, such as a prize drawing for a Halloween/masquerade mask at Hammered Edge Gallery. Miss Judy will tell Spooky Fun Stories (free) every half hour at Maple & Main Gallery (back door, downstairs).

Starting at 6:30 p.m., the PTO will be sponsoring Haunted Hayrides in Laurel Hill Cemetery. “Fast Pass” tickets will be available, so families can avoid standing in line too long. Chester Fife & Drum Corps musicians will be adding to the spooky atmosphere of the hayrides. The PTO will have game tents and a spooky cupcake tent at the entrance to the cemetery, and will also sell chili, cider and doughnuts in town.
