Barry,For Halloween, Just as they opened, we stood by the main stage by the Horror make-up show. They announced on the stage to go over to the gates where the parade normally starts. They gave my wife and daughter a ticket,which said which float they would be on. If you were under 18, a parent had to sign a waiver. We tried it a week later, but missed the announcement. It was cute, they got to keep the masks and some beads. Backstage, the castmembers were great to our daughter. She loved it.
