Parade Start: 12pm
This October 21, 2018, building on the established success of the Roscoe Village Neighbors Halloween Parade, which is attended by over 5,000 people per year, RVN intends to organize the 1st annual Roscoe Village 5K race and Fun Run the morning of this annual event, now in its 18th year.
This will be an all-day celebration of Halloween and the Roscoe Village community which will include the following schedule of activities:
8:00 – 8:45 On-site packet pick-up and on-site registration will be available for $50/person for the Roscoe Village 5k, and $20/person for the Fun Run.
9:00 – 10:30 5K race winding through the streets of Roscoe Village, costumes will be encouraged
10:45 – 11:15 Age 10 and under kids Costumed Fun Run down Roscoe Street. All kids participating will receive a finisher’s medal
12:00 – 12:30 The 18th Annual RVN Halloween Parade, beginning at Oakley and proceeding to Damen
12:30 – 4:00 Crafts, a photo booth, food trucks, activities, and much, much more
The race, featuring the streets of Roscoe Village, is geared toward all ages and competition levels! All proceeds will go back to directly benefitting the community and its neighborhood programs.
Costumes are encouraged for all in attendance. There will also be food, music, and beer booths. Whether you are a serious runner, or just love to celebrate Halloween, the event will bring together running enthusiasts, school supporters, neighbors and party-goers of all ages.
This year’s post-race activities (located between Hoyne and Hamilton on Roscoe) promise to be the biggest ever. We’ve increased the number of craft and activity tables, commissioned a photo booth and arranged for food trucks to be in place.
From tents set up along Roscoe to dancing, costume-contests, food vendors and photo vignettes they’ll be something for everyone. Dress up in your costumes and come see why Roscoe Village was rated #1 for best trick-or-treating!
