Grafton Halloween Parade winners

High School winners were (L-R): Jacob Foster and Matlea McKinney, Alexis Keating, Kati Elementary winners were (L-R): Sydney Nowak, Rachel Whary and Corissa Keating
DeMarco, Cory Dulemba with Addy, Sara Helwig and John Koleski. Winners in the preschool costume contest were (L-R): Amy Hemmingsen, Bennett and Pais-
ley McCullough and Ruby Faust with her sister Bryar Faust.
It was a beautiful fall Sunday with leaves brightly colored and a warm sun shining as the
Grafton police department cleared the way for the costumed parade participants in the annual
Grafton Firemen’s Halloween Parade. The police cars were followed by the Midview March-
ing Blue, its members all in costumes. The band played the Midview Fight Song to start the
parade and played selections from this year’s marching season. Following the band were
children and adults in costume wearing the traditional paper plate numbers. This year, a car
dressed as a minion, joined the parade. The village’s ?re trucks also participated. The parade
went around the block covering parts of Chestnut, Railroad, Main and Mechanic Streets before
returning to the parking lot outside the police and ?re departments. There the Midview Blue
played while participants and parade watchers enjoyed donuts and cider provided by the ?re
department. Judges then chose costume winners in three divisions - pre-school, elementary
and high school, which were then awarded cash prizes by the ?re department. Winners in the
preschool division were: third place, Amy Hemmingsen who was dressed as a duck, second
place went to Paisley and Bennett McCullough, who were dressed as a ?re ?ghter and Dal-
matian in a wagon dressed as a ?re truck, and ?rst place went to Ruby Faust who was dressed
as an owl. The elementary division winners were: third place - Corissa Keating as a witch; in
second place was Rachel Whary as a huge spider; and ?rst place went to Sydney Nowak as
a spooky widow. Some of the high school winners went together to make group costumes.
Placing third in the division was Alexis Keating as a sorceress; second place went to Robin
Hood and Maid Marian known as Jacob Foster and Matlea McKinney; and ?rst place went to
characters from the Wizard of Oz known as Katie DeMarco, Cory Dulemba, Sara Helwig and
John Koleski with Addy as Toto.
