Three years ago Ballooney initiated his afternoon closing "Kid

this year! The kids should gather with Ballooney next to the

instructions. Once all are in costume the group will parade
around the Village Green, across the Swinging Bridge and end up
circling through the Olohan Alley. Parents are

costume for them too!
