Selbyville Halloween Parade canceled due to weather concerns


At a meeting between the Fenwick Island Lions Club and the Town of Selbyville mid-week, organizers decided to cancel the Selbyville Halloween Parade scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 28, due to the likelihood of intermittent rain, fairly high winds and possible thunderstorms.

“Unfortunately, due to the complexity of the event — the required permitting, closure of roads, number of fire police and police officers involved and the number of groups involved — rescheduling the parade, on short notice, is simply not possible,” they said.

The winner of the Lions’ 50/50 raffle, scheduled to be drawn at the conclusion of the parade, will instead be drawn at the club’s luncheon meeting, to be held on Monday, Nov. 2, at Harpoon Hanna’s restaurant. The winner will be notified and will be posted on both the Town of Selbyville website and the Fenwick Island Lions Club website.
