RAIN DATE The parade has been moved to Sunday. Nov 5th due to terrible weather on Sunday, Oct 29th. Hope to see you all there!
Join Grace Smith House, Inc. every October in Poughkeepsie, NY for our annual Grace Pumpkin Parade! We celebrate the spookiest of seasons, enjoy local hot cider, and raise funds to support Grace Smith House in empowering survivors of domestic violence and their families to live free from fear. October is also Bullying Awareness Month, and we encourage costumed creepers of all ages to dress up in non-violent costumes, be inspired by each others creativity, and be safe during Trick or Treat. Together, we can break the cycle of domestic violence in our community!
