History of Silver Strand Halloween
The Annual Silver Strand Halloween Celebration began nearly 3 decades ago when homes on the Strand were few and far between. Many of the new residents lived too far away from traditional trick or treat sites to take their children to, so they figured out a way to bring the fun to Silver Strand.
At the request of his young daughter, homeowner John Conner took the initiative and decorated his garage as a haunted house and other homeowners quickly followed suit. Eventually the event became the annual extravaganza that it is today, attracting families not only from the Silver Strand, but from adjacent communities as well.
Why is Silver Strand so Popular?
It’s popularity stems from the fact that is a safe place for families and their children to explore and trick or treat. Homeowners on Roma Court also go all out to provide a wonderful evening for everyone who comes out to enjoy it. It is the perfect way to spend a halloween with children!
When do the festivities begin?
As usual, festivities begin appearing on Roma around 5:30pm. It begins as a trickle, then a stream and finally a mass. The night typically ends around 9:00pm.
You can dress spooky or pretty, princess or ghoulish, dead or alive — it doesn’t matter as long as you don’t come as you are! Instead, come as you want to be!
