GREAT SUCCESS at the Barrett Halloween Parade for RE/MAX of the Poconos

We did it. Check out these costumes. Most of them were homemade with love, devotion and lots of talent. Our characters were well loved and our theme worked well. Everybody knows The Wizard of OZ!

(I was a designated walker in our RE/MAX of the Poconos T-shirt to help distribute candy)

I don't know how many pounds of candy we gave out but we sure could have given more.  Lots and lots of families were there but I believe due to the clouds and the winds, the crowd was smaller than usual.

We had lots of fun and won 3rd place for the Best Theme in the Parade! WooHoo!

On the front of the truck carrying the RE/MAX balloon we had a rainbow with "There's no place like home" written on it and behind the people the float was all decorated with Halloween decorations and Sold signs, and pending signs, etc.

My daughter Jessica, helped us out by being Glinda, the Good Witch!

And here is the whole Gang (characters, walkers, candy tossers, etc)

That's me in that Goofy looking red crab hat, behind Glinda. Although I had my RE/MAX of the Poconos T-shirt on I felt I should wear something "costumeish" and that was a last minute thought, so that hat was all I could find. LOL.

We froze while we waited for the judging of the floats to be done and the parade to begin (about 2.5 hours) but once we started moving we were fine.

A great time was had by all. I cannot wait until the next Parade! Wonder what we will come up with next.

Making wonderful memories! Life is good.


From a marketing standpoint I believe we made a good impression on the crowd, wonderful name recognition, and great Community participation. We are here to serve our Community and we would like them to know that.
