Roseburg, Oregon – This October the 53rd Annual Neewollah Parade goes virtual. The Downtown Roseburg Association hosts virtual costume parade and house decorating contests for all ages, beginning October 15, 2021. Participants can submit a photo of their creative Halloween costume or decorated home at bit.ly/neewollah2021 from October 15 to November 3, 2021. Approved submissions are automatically entered to win one of ten Grand Prizes for the costume contest or one of three Grand Prizes for the house decorating contest, announced on November 5, 2021. A gallery of all entries will display in an online gallery at bit.ly/neewollah2021 so everyone can see all the Halloween creativity.
Downtown Roseburg hosts the Neewollah Parade each Halloween in the center of downtown. Every year thousands of kids attend the event with their parents. 2021 marks the 53rd year for Neewollah and given the continued pandemic and consideration of all safety precautions, the event is virtual again in 2021. This year, Neewollah is re-imagined as a community-wide virtual costume parade and house decorating photo contest.
“The DRA is overjoyed to welcome and support events downtown in any capacity, always moving towards a thriving community and partners with a shared vision! Halloween may be different through the pandemic but with the help of our community and partners we can arrive at a fun and safe experience!” -Jessica Bogardus, Executive Director, Downtown Roseburg Association said.
