Roxy’s Halloween Recap: Mendham Township Elementary School Halloween Parade

Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post

After Tuesday’s crazy snow storm, today was a great day for a Halloween Parade in the Roxiticus Valley, and Mendham Township Elementary School did not disappoint us. We were there to cheer on London and Maddie in their store-bought costumes as our two Sharpays from Disney’s High School Musical, and came away impressed with the creativity of the students (and parents) from first through fourth grade.

While Sarah Palin apparently had another commitment, Barack Obama and John McCain turned out for the MTES parade, along with a Rubik’s cube, Fancy Nancy, a very well done (homemade) robot, girls in their poodle skirts, and lots of scary monsters and Star Wars characters including a teacher as a perfect Princess Lea.

The West Morris Mendham high school marching band turned out in force, leading the crowd of costumed students in their march around the school grounds. We’re looking forward to seeing the whole marching band (including three of our favorite teenage babysitters) tomorrow as the Mendham High football team takes on Morris Hills in Rex, Roxy, London and Maddie’s first home football game since we moved to the Roxiticus Valley five years ago.

After the parade, our family headed out trick-or-treating in Drakewick for our first time ever… in prior years, we’d gone on a local neighborhood Halloween hayride with our friends Lynette and Tom and their twins in Chester.  Since the houses are so far apart in much of the “Greater Roxiticus Valley,” we enjoyed the door-to-door transportation for the past four years, but London and Maddie seemed to have outgrown the hayride tradition and wanted to venture out with their friends where the houses are close together for lots more candy loot.
