Bodmin Halloween Parade - 29th October 2022!!
What? Where? When? And BOO!!! Come and meet the Bodmin Beast this howl-oween!!
The Bodmin Halloween Parade is BACK and better than ever!
Bodmaxx’s Greg McLaren has been leading the O.G (organising group) which consists of an enthusiastic panel of local volunteers that love all things spooky and community!
Guided by Greg, the O.G, like a coven of witches, have been holding their meetings in the evenings after work to share plans and creative ideas of beasts, cauldrons, spirits, and hags to create a memorable Halloween experience for the whole town to enjoy and to develop their skills so that it can be brought back year after year!
Halloween Workshops – make something for the Parade!
Come along to the Bodmaxx building (opposite what used to be Whetherspoons) and make something for the parade! All materials will be provided and there will be creative facilitators to help prompt you or your children with ideas or to help make your creative vision into a spooky reality!
If you have an old Halloween costume, then perhaps you could donate it to the O.G creatives or bring it along and give it a new purpose – Go all 'Dr Frankenstein' on those old bits of clothing and bring them to life at the Bodmin Halloween Parade.
Workshop Dates and Times:
· Sunday 16th October – 11 -5pm @ Bodmaxx
· Sunday 23rd October – 11 – 5pm @ Bodmaxx
· Wednesday 26th October – 11- 5pm @ Bodmaxx
The Halloween Parade:
The actual parade is on Saturday the 29th October. Everyone is to meet at 5:30pm on the green opposite Beacon Academy to start the parade at 6pm.
Kbsk will be kicking it all off with a dance, especially choreographed for the occasion! They will then have a brief encounter with THE BEAST, an extremely impressive and new for this year, puppet provided by Bodmin College.
Greg told Bodmin Life, “There will be treats and performances en route, including passing through the veil to the other world – the beacon – where the spirits of Bodmin and characters of the season will perform music and a ceremony to mark the turning of the wheel. Let’s celebrate ourselves and get together as we head into winter time!”
