Celebrate Hamlet Style

For decades the Hamlet Cluster has celebrated Halloween with a kid's parade and family pot-luck dinner. Each year, we kick off Halloween by gathering the kids at the top of Dry River (where it intersects Middle Creek) and let them march down the street to show off their costumes. All Hamlet residents are then welcomed to gather for a quick pot-luck dinner at the end of Dry River before trick-or-treating begins

Trick-or-Treat Information

The Hamlet, and most surrounding neighborhoods, trick-or-treat on Halloween night (Oct. 31). In the Hamlet, the tradition is for all families to hang out for the pot-luck dinner then begin trick-or-treating at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Not Participating?
If you are not participating or giving out candy, please leave your front porch light off to indicate chidlren should by-pass your house. Note - this is the only night of the year we suggest keepign it off!

The Parade

October 31st at 5:30 p.m.

Hamlet kids (and their friends and family) meet at the top of Dry River Court no later than 5:30p.m. on October 31st. Of course wear your costume! You will parade down Dry River to show off your costumes and lead the adults to the Pot Luck dinner! Adults with costumes - join in the fun!

Adults are welcome to line the Dry River sidewalks to cheer on the kids. Parents of small kids often march with their little goblins. The parade lasts no more than 2 minutes - but is always a blast.

Pot-Luck Dinner

October 31st at 5:40 p.m.

All Hamlet residents are invited to the pot-luck dinner that follows the parade. We ask everyone to contribute a food, drink or supply item. Please use this Signup Genius to help us track contributions.
