The organizers behind the annual Little Goblins Parade in Logan Circle are again on the hunt for some volunteer “goblin wranglers.”

Little Goblins event flyerThis year’s march will begin at Logan Circle on Saturday, Oct. 29, at 12:45 p.m. This is the sixth year that costumed little ones have paraded through the neighborhood.

“Neighborhood little goblins, spooky and sweet, will take over the streets Saturday, October 29, and we could use a few pairs of hands to assist with passing out treats, street safety (MPD will also be on hand), and post-parade festivities,” said Joelle Myers, a co-founder of the parade.

The parade needs about 20 volunteers to hand out candy and help keep things in order.

Princesses, superheroes and even a little Kim Jong Un descended on Logan Circle in search of candy during last year’s event.

Locals who want to help out can contact Myers by email.
