CHANNEL 1 NEWS talked to the Mayor about the importance of this Halloween celebration and how it would lead into Friday. "We hope to draw a huge crowd into town for Halloween," Dover said. "After the fun and excitement of a parade and all, we will kick off the Thanksgiving Day holiday season at midnight. The grocery stores will all be open and they will be selling turkeys really cheap! To top that off, the bars will stay open all night! This will give the public a real head-start on Thanksgiving and the Bridgeport economy will get a much needed shot in the tush."
Senior editor and reporter Dave Taylor has been asked to be the Grand Marshall of the parade and is looking forward to riding in a parade float. His report will be published this weekend.
