Halloween Horribles Parade at Center Place (Photos)

The annual Halloween Horribles Parade at Center Place in Brandon got under way Oct. 28 under clear skies and cool temperatures, with hundreds of kids and adults stopping by for treats from area small businesses, groups, organizations and politicians.


Hundreds of kids and adults wrapped around Parsons Lake outside the Sandy Rodriguez Center in Brandon for the 2012 Halloween Horribles Parade, where booths representing area businesses, clubs, organizations, media outlets, services and groups were well-stocked with treats to give for free.

The event is held annually by the Center Place Fine Arts & Civic Association, which shares space with the Brandon Regional Library in the Sandy Rodriguez Center, at 619 Vonderburg Drive.

Children in costume, accompanied by adults, many of whom also were in costume, lined up to start a parade of stops from the lakeside entrance of Center Place through the nearby medical offices and parking lots.

Brandon Patch was at the event, too, reminding parade attendees of the chance to enter Patch's Best Halloween Contest in America Contest. Click the link to upload your photos to enter.

The contest runs from Oct. 15 to Nov. 1. National judges will choose 21 finalists from each Patch state and select one grand prize winner based on who has the most creative and innovative costume (we've combined North Carolina & South Carolina for this contest, as well as Washington D.C. and Virginia). Each state finalist will receive $250 and one grand prize winner will receive $5,000.
