Hellertown Mayor David Heintzelman agreed to have his head shaved after Sunday’s Halloween Parade to help raise funds for the family of a local girl who is battling cancer. Local real estate broker Cheyenne Reiman–who has also been involved in fundraising on behalf of the family–did the honors. The charity haircut took place at a community event in Dimmick Park.

After Mother Nature teased anxious parade planners with a threat of showers Sunday afternoon, the weather cooperated for the Hellertown Halloween Parade and thousands of residents were able to enjoy a fun-filled fall afternoon watching the annual spectacle.

And this year the fun didn’t stop when the parade ended. It continued in the borough’s Dimmick Park, where a community event in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the borough’s incorporation and the Dewey Fire Co.’s upcoming 125th anniversary was held.

A highlight of the community celebration–which included live music and food trucks–was a charity “haircut” Hellertown Mayor David Heintzelman volunteered to receive in order to help raise funds for a local girl who is currently battling cancer.

Heintzelman, who also chairs the volunteer committee that organizes the parade, thanked the community for its support on the Hellertown Halloween Parade Facebook page Monday.

“We certainly do love our parades,” he noted.

The page was also where this year’s winners in four different categories were announced.
