Gazette Halloween parade seeking entrants 

The first annual Ghouls Gone Wild parade, sponsored by Oklahoma Gazette, is the first of its kind in Oklahoma. Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne will serve as grand marshal, marching in his plastic bubble from the corner of N.W. Eighth Street and N. Broadway Avenue into Bricktown Saturday, Oct. 27.

Gazette Marketing Director Jill Brown said the parade is meant to celebrate Oklahoma City's unique and vibrant artistic community, including its:
" musicians,
" performance groups,
" civic organizations and
" other outspoken individuals.

"There's no Halloween parade like this anywhere in the region," Brown said. "This is our chance to show the world that Oklahoma has a wealth of creative talent."

INVOLVEMENT
Gazette currently is accepting applications for:
" floats,
" specialty vehicles,
" marching bands,
" musical acts,
" performance groups,
" walking groups and
" costumed revelers.

Marty Dillon, vice president of Party Galaxy, said the retail outlet is sponsoring a float in the event.

"I think it's going to be really good for the community," he said. "It should be a really good time."

The parade will feature commentary from a panel of judges, including state Sen. Andrew Rice.

"There's going to be a lot of creativity on display," Rice said. "It's a new tradition that hopefully will stay around for a while."

CONCESSIONS
Food, beer and soft drinks will be available from vendors along the route, and bands will be performing along with clowns, fire-eaters and jugglers.

"Everybody should dress up and get crazy," Dillon said. "Enjoy it!"  "Lisa Janssen
