    What a great parade. Lots of adults and kidse dress up just watch the festivities. We really loved the Headless Horseman and Super woman on the horses. Best of all, it’s free.entertainment. It’s a great Friday night.

    What a wonderful way to spend a Friday night. Adults and kids are dressed up just to watch the parade. The kids loved the Headless Horseman and Super Woman on horses. Fun, fun is the way to describe it.

    We got to bardstown rd at 6pm. Got our spot along bardstown rd by grinstead dr infront of chipotle. Parade started out nice but half way thru the parade was not continuious. Floats were spaced so far apart and people started standing in the street right infront of us. It was so bad that it made the parade down to one lane and floats could hardly get thru and we could not see any more. It was ridiculous!!!! We left!!! It was SO much better last year when caufields had control of parade. We will not be going back!

    I very disappointed in the parade. The way everyone was shoving n pushing each other into the street. Me n my family just got to stand n watch ppl run in the street. Was scared some was gonna get injured. Plus what 3 things I did see weren’t that great. If u love ur kids don’t ever go it’s very dangerous. Plus not candy r anything just ppl running the streets like animals.

    This would be my very first time go to a Halloween parade and I can not wait for it and what type of things do they have at the parade what time do it start and do they have little games… uh I can’t wait for it…

  6. Kim says:

    Love! Love! Love! The parade, I’ve been going for a few years now. I see that it’s on October 16th this year, but what time does it start? Can’t wait to see all the cool things this year.

    I was unaware of this parade before last year. A family member actually ask me to join her so I did. I typically am not a big Halloween fan but I really enjoyed this parade. I think I was more excited than my children. The makeup and costumes were so real looking. You guys did an awesome job with this. I was excited about this year last year. Today is the day and the weather is horrible. Will this have any effect on the parade? Will the show go on rain or shine or will this drizzle cause it to be rescheduled?

    My family has enjoyed this parade for the last 6-7 years however, the patrons that come to watch don’t understand that they can’t hang out in the street. People come early to get a good seat and those that show up later think it’s okay to stand in the road to receive the free candy. They have one cop that rides down Bardstown Road once and tells people to get off the street but they just go right back as soon as the cop car goes out of sight. My suggestion is that you don’t allow those in the parade to throw candy out and maybe have a trick or trunk at the end of the parade in the Mid City Mall’s parking lot. There were so many people complaining this year because people were crowding the streets just to receive a few pieces of free candy.

    How about publishing the date so we can plan 2012. Thanks, Don

    I never miss the Caufields parade, It is a lot of fun for the whole family. It needs to be advertised more, so more people can enjoy it.

  13. allie says:

    It was originally the 7th but they changed it. It even said the 7th in my Grey’s bookstore Student Planner. Hope that explains some of the confusion. :)

    The website says Oct 14th and you have the 7th listed
