Monterey Park students participate in handmade costume parade

Witches, Thing 1 to Thing 12, and Princess Elsa and her sidekick Olaf were only a few of the characters who paraded down Chandler Avenue in Monterey Park on Friday during Happy Day School’s annual Halloween Parade. Check out photos below!

The school's Halloween Parade is a tradition that began in the 1950s. Teachers and students make and decorate all the costumes in the parade using recyclable items such as paper bags, newspaper, tissue paper, catering tins, and more.

Friday’s route included a visit to the Merci School, a center for the community’s mentally disabled. The children had a great time showcasing their costumes and sharing smiles with their family and friends.

Happy Day School hopes you have a happy and safe Halloween!
