2019 Halloween Parade A Great Time For Students, Staff and Community


During the annual Halloween Parade, Ashland Elementary students, staff and parents enjoyed an afternoon of trick or treating and spooky fun.  This year, Grand Marshal Dan Uhlman led the parade.  Dressed in his official Pumpkin King suit, parade stick and horn, he guided the students to the many participating businesses on Main Street.

As the parade lined up at the elementary school, the air was filled with joy and laughter as students and staff alike showed off their costumes.  Community members and local business owners also joined the festivities by also wearing a wonderful selection of costumes.
