There was plenty of Halloween spirit in the air at the lower school gym on Oct. 31, where even a rainy afternoon couldn’t stop K-5 students from parading around in an array of clever costumes.
This year, the 17th annual Bucknall Halloween Parade was moved indoors, but the rain didn’t keep away the usual cast of characters, including superheroes, ghosts, goblins, witches and fairy princesses. To the delight of parents and other onlookers, each grade level had the opportunity to showcase their characters as a group.
The event was sponsored by Harker’s BEST staff. Students could opt to wear their costume to school or bring it with them to put on before the parade, but most wore their costumes all day.
“Rain didn’t keep us from having a Halloween parade. We were able to make this less-than-ideal parade weather a huge success!” recalled Kim Cali, director of the lower school’s BEST program.
