Breakfast fundraiser and parade
DIXON — Dixon Main Street and the Lee County Council on Aging will host a Monster Breakfast fundraiser from 8 to 10 a.m. Oct. 26 at the Post House Ballroom.
Guests will be greeted by costumed characters and they will enjoy a breakfast buffet by Mama Cimino’s. The cost is $4 for adults, $2 for children 12 and under and you get $1 off when you come in costume.
Dixon Main Street executive director Josh Albrecht said he expects the event to be a fun way to enjoy Halloween in downtown Dixon as the annual Dixon Noon Lions annual Halloween parade follows the breakfast at 10 a.m. The parade leaves from Haymarket Square and features the Reagan Middle School Marching Band and hundreds of costumed kids. The parade loops through the downtown and finishes back at Haymarket Square.
The Monster Breakfast is being served buffet-style by Mama Cimino’s, which is becoming well know for their Sunday brunch. The breakfast will feature several breakfast items including sausage and pancakes. Proceeds from the event will go to support activities and programs for Dixon Main Street and the LCCOA.
The annual parade also includes a costume contest with judging starting at 9:30 a.m. at Haymarket Square. All participants in the parade receive a treat bag donated by local businesses, Dixon High School Leo Club and the Noon Lions.
If there is bad weather, the costume judging will be held at the Post House Ballroom.
