New Jersey's biggest Halloween parade made a comeback Saturday.
The Toms River Halloween Parade was shut down last year due to the pandemic.
The parade, which is now in its 82nd year and hosted by Toms River Fire Company One, has only been canceled a handful of times, including during Superstorm Sandy nine years ago.
Weather threatened the fate of the parade yet again this weekend after Toms River experienced flooding Friday night.
However, the parade route was clear and the conditions improved so organizers decided the show could go on.
“The people of this town look forward to this parade every year and they're very disappointed when we don't have it for weather-related reasons or pandemic, whatever it may be,” says Ken Beck, the parade chairman.
