TTPA Halloween Fun Day and Parade- Sat 25 Oct 2014

Kids and Costumes are great fun!

Dig out your costumes for you and your horse, it’s time for some Halloween fun!

Saddle up and attend the City of Lucas events with the TTPA on Saturday October 25, 2014.

TTPA will celebrate a Halloween Fun Day in conjunction with the City of Lucas Founders Day Fall Fest.

Join fellow horse riders for some Halloween Fun. TTPA will ride in the Lucas Founders Day Parade (in costumes) and enjoy the day’s festivities.

TTPA will hold a horse and rider costume contest starting at 10 AM in the parking area behind Lucas City Hall. Create your best horse & rider costume and have a chance at winning prizes from both TTPA and the City.


TTPA Costume Contest Divisions are: Youth, Adult and we will have special awards at the judges discretion for other divisions (could be things like most authentic, most original, most comic, etc).

Here are the details:

A note on parking: Lucas has expanded the park next to City Hall since last year. This has reduced the area available for parking. As a result, we will need to try to park:
  • in a more orderly fashion
  • closer together

We will be coordinating parking to have longer trailers (3+ horse trailers and/or those with large living quarters) to the right as you pull through the gate and smaller 2-horse trailers on the left.

Pull straight down the gravel drive then loop back to the right (or left, as appropriate) and double back to park facing out with truck nose facing the center drive.

Park close enough to maximize parking, but far enough apart so riders can hitch and tack their horses between trailers.

When: Saturday, October 25, 2014
Where: Meet at Lucas City Hall and Pavilion, 665 Country Club Road, Lucas TX – This is the NEW Lucas city hall building. Park in the back (driving to the south side of building). South entrance to City Hall is easiest for trailers.
Time:
8-9 AM Arrive and setup. Trailers parked no later than 9:15, please.
10 AM TTPA Costume Judging-Young, Adult, Judges Special Awards
11 AM Parade Lineup
12 Noon Founders Day Parade

This should be a fun day for everyone.

Join our TTPA contingent for the Weston 4th of July Parade. The Parade starts a 10am, but assembly is earlier.

The parade staging area is near the intersection of FM455 and FM543 in Weston. Tracy Matern will be on hand at 8am with our parade blankets and decor. Judging is at 9am, so we’ll be there at 8am also to get our horses ready.
