Our Magical Community Event
Halloween comes but once a year, but Rye gets in the spirit early thanks to Rye Rec. For the 59th year, they invited children to conjure up witches, goblins, and more on storefront windows. Six-hundred participants descended in and around town, and, a few days later, the spirit remained strong in Indian Village!
Halloween comes but once a year, but Rye gets in the spirit early thanks to Rye Recreation. For the 59th year, they invited Rye children to use all their crafty powers to conjure up witches, goblins, and more on storefront windows. A record 600 participants (K-8) descended in and around town Sunday, October 23 and pulled off quite a few festive and colorful tricks. And, a few days later, the spirit remained strong in Indian Village for the annual parade!
Halloween Window Painting is co-sponsored by The Children’s Philanthropy of the Woman’s Club of Rye, which held a record-breaking bake sale that day. Hungry artists and their families were treated to an array of goodies baked by club members and lots more generously donated by Patisserie Salzburg, 350 Classic Bake Shop, and Starbucks.
