It is a tradition during the Mohnton-Cumru Lions Club Great Pumpkin Parade that the participants shower the children on the parade route with Halloween candy. To view the streets of Mohnton, lined with little children dressed in their Halloween costumes with hundreds of bright orange pumpkins at the ready to collect all of that candy, you’ll agree, the only name befitting this parade is the “Great Pumpkin Parade”.
Food vendors line the streets and offer a variety of goodies such as Philly Cheese Steaks, hamburgers, hotdogs, funnel cakes, French fries, soft drinks and balloons.
A first place prize of $500.00 goes to the best float entry. Anyone is welcome to enter a float. Although this is a Halloween Parade, there is no required theme for a float entry. Please check our Parade Categories Section for Float guidelines. Entrants must be pre-registered to eligible for cash prizes.
Upon registration, every Float, Individual, Group or Organization is placed into a category. Every category is judged during the parade and prizes are awarded accordingly.
Marching Bands, Floats, Food, Fun and lots of Candy. The Mohnton-Cumru Lions Club Great Pumpkin Parade, don’t miss it!
