Last year's Halloween parade in Del Ray

Families and parade enthusiasts will not want to miss this annual tradition. The 13th Annual Del Ray Halloween Parade is scheduled for Sunday, October 25, 2009 at 2 p.m.

This year’s parade will feature awards for the Best Pet Costume, Best Decorated Business, Best Decorated Home, and Best Decorated Stroller. Awards will be given out at a brief ceremony at Mt. Vernon and Commonwealth Avenues following the parade, along with refreshments (hot dogs donated by 7-Eleven, cider, and cookies) and goodie bags for the children.

There will be music provided by Legend of Lummy Hallin and games and activities for the children provided by the Alexandria Jaycees and DC Metro Church. They will take place at the Mt. Vernon fields immediately following the parade. All activities are free!

The parade will begin at 2 p.m. at Mt. Vernon Avenue, south of E. Bellefonte and continue down to the Mount Vernon Rec Center playing fields at Mt. Vernon and Commonwealth Avenues. Children, pets, and strollers in costumes are invited to march and show off their finest and scariest Halloween garb. To register your stroller, please look for the registration desk at Bellefonte and Mt. Vernon Avenues beginning at 1:30 p.m.  Pet Registration begins at 1:30 at Barkley Square at 2006 Mt. Vernon Avenue.

After the parade, beginning at 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm, for the 3rd year, families can enjoy a haunted graveyard that is being constructed by Bean Creative and will be located next to their lot at Mt. Vernon and E. Del Ray Avenue
