To bring home our town’s new slogan as a result of the Greater Toms River Chamber #TagTR Competition and in line with The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation’s goal to engage all of Toms River’s citizens in the arts, we are excited to announce the Engage Toms River Halloween Parade Competition.
We are working with WOBM, the Greater Toms River Chamber of Commerce and the Toms River Artists Community (TRAC) to challenge you to create the greatest float in the history of the Toms River Fire Department No. 1 Halloween Parade—with the winning design team receiving $10,000!!!
The concept: A float that shows why Toms River is the best place to live, work and play.
The team who designs the best float will be given a materials budget of $5000 to utilize from concept through to the finished product. On the night of the Toms River Fire Department #1 Halloween Parade, after you make your triumphant trip down the parade route, you’ll receive a $10,000 check from The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation!
To help you, TRAC will donate up to 160 hours of help. The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation will then give TRAC a $5000 donation for their great community spirit!
Entries must be submitted digitally by September 18th.
The Judges Top 3 choices will be announced on WOBM’s Shawn and Sue on September 21st.
Once the announcement hits, the community will have one week to vote for their favorite parade float concept. The winner will be announced on Shawn and Sue September 30th.
We’ll all get to see the winning float on Halloween Night at the historic, amazing Toms River Halloween Parade!
