Central City 6th Grader wins Centralia Halloween Parade theme contest

CENTRALIA — A Central City 6th Grader won a pizza party for her class Friday after her theme was selected for the 95th Annual Centralia Halloween Parade.

According to parade president and Wamac Mayor Butch Mathus, Hadley Dillinger came up with this year’s parade theme “Carving up Memories.”

Due to her creativity, Hadley and her classmates were treated to a pizza party in their classroom Friday.

Mathus says Hadley had the honor snatched from her last year when the parade was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Hadley is the daughter of John and April Dillinger.
