Last week the Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA announced they would no longer host/sponsor the 2018 Halloween Parade.  The Y explained that, due to significant growth in other programs, events, and capital projects which are more closely linked to their mission, they are unable to provide the necessary resources to continue sponsoring the parade.  Since that announcement the Y has received numerous inquiries from local organizations/businesses about taking it over. “We have great news for the Dubuque community!” said Abbey Degenhardt, Director of Marketing & Fund Development. “Congratulations to the businesses that will be hosting 2018 Halloween Parade! Townsquare Media of Dubuque, McGrath Family of Dealerships, and Pinnacle Cellular & Satellite. Thank you for continuing the tradition.”

 The Y will continue to work closely with and support these businesses as they prepare to lead this year’s Halloween Parade.
