The annual Halloween Costume Parade sponsored by the Oxford Lions Club was held October 25th, 2009, at the Oxford Fire Station on Fort Hill Park, Oxford, NY. The parade took place inside the Village of Oxford Fire Hall. Halloween music and a medieval castle were provided by fellow Lion, emcee extraordinaire, DJ Jim Baldwin. DJ Jim started off the costume promenade with the eldest to the youngest in six categories. First, the High School, group or family (which featured two groups- The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe, and the Nascar Racing Family); second were the middle schoolers category; third were 4th & 5th grades; fourth were 2nd & 3rd grades; fifth were the K thru 1st grade; and last, but certainly not least was the Pre-K category. Each category was led by an Oxford Lion member carrying a sign. Four Oxford Academy High School National Honor Society students volunteered to judge the costumes and the club awarded prizes for the best ones. Cider and donuts were served.
