Halloween Parade and 5K Postponed for Sandy

Frankenstorm disrupts Bethlehem Halloween traditions and Steel Horse Poker Run at SteelStacks. Events rescheduled for Sunday, November 4.


With Hurricane Sandy bearing down on the Northeast, three events planned in Bethlehem for Sunday – the Halloween parade, the Halloween 5K and the Steel Horse Poker Run for Cystic Fibrosis – have been postponed until next Sunday, November 4.

All of the events will have the same starting time. The parade will start at 2 p.m.

The Chamber of Commerce Halloween 5K race will follow tradition and start along the parade route an hour before the parade starts at 1 p.m. However, there will be no packet pickup on the Saturday preceding the race. Packets can be picked up before the race between 10 a.m. at noon.

Costume judging will take place in front of the Historic Hotel Bethlehem at 12:30 p.m.

If you're unable to run next weekend and you'd like to transfer your registration to another person, you are asked to let the chamber know the person’s name, age and email address. Refunds will not be issued. Email race organizers at info@bethlehem5K.com with questions.

The 2nd Annual Steel Horse Poker Run for Cystic Fibrosis, which is a combination motorcycle ride and MINI Cooper rally that starts and ends at SteelStacks, is also being pushed back a week.

Registration for the event will start at 10 a.m. and the after party will go from 2 to 5 p.m.

If there are any questions please contact info@steelhorsepokerrun.com.
