WARRENSBURG Costume creativity remains a vibrant tradition in town, according to observers of Warrensburgs annual Halloween Parade. More than 325 children took part in this years parade, Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co. President Kevin Geraghty said Monday. The fire company has sponsored the parade for 30 years or more. As in years past, the parade featured a great number of homemade costumes created by area youngsters and their parents or family members, Geraghty said. The creativity that community members demonstrate is remarkable, he said. Every year I am amazed by the effort they put into their costumes. At the conclusion of the parade Oct. 31, fire company members handed out 48 trophies, primarily for originality and creativity, to the youngsters. Also, the firefighters passed out over 300 balloons, hundreds of trinkets, pencils and coloring books, and emptied 142 bags of candy that was tossed in the air in the parade for marchers and bystanders. The fire companys next community event is set for Dec. 13, when Santa Claus is scheduled to visit the firehouse, Geraghty said. Traditions are thriving in Warrensburg, he said.
