The Palmyra Community Library will be hosting its first HAUNTED HOUSE on Cuyler Street from 2-4 pm. The cost is only one canned good to be donated to the Food Pantry.After meeting the Village Merchants, join your friends and neighbors in the Village Park for a bonfire and more.

The kids enjoy a very fun and safe Halloween celebration. Parents get to enjoy the evening with their kids while previewing our Merchant’s goods and services. Merchants get to show off their wares before the start of the busy holiday shopping season. I hope everybody comes out to see what the Village of Palmyra has to offer.”
