SALEMBURG — The fun of Halloween arrived a little early Thursday when children marched through downtown wearing fun costumes.

Students from Salemburg Elementary School (SES) participated in the annual Fall Parade, which is a tradition in Salemburg. Several community organizations and Sampson County officials participated. Some of them included Lakewood High School’s marching band, cheerleaders and JROTC. The event preceded a festival at the school, with plenty of activities for children.

“It’s been electric all day long around school,” said Principal Gerald Johnson. “It was a great turnout from the local community on the parade route.”

Christie Jackson, SES educator and parade coordinator, was also pleased with the turnout. She also appreciated the participation of the high school students, Sampson County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Jimmy Thornton, Salemburg Fire Department, North Carolina Highway Patrol, and town officials.

“I think the parade was awesome this year,” Jackson said. “The kids enjoy it and we look forward to it every year.”
