19th Annual Del Ray Halloween Parade Today on the Avenue!


UPDATE (8:22 AM)::
If you are worried about how this morning’s rain will affect the parade…

One of Del Ray’s favorite traditions, the 19th annual Del Ray Halloween Parade, will be held TODAY (Sunday, October 25th) at 2:00 PM. In past years, more than 7,500 have participated in this annual event which included over 2,500 children, special dignitaries & elected officials; over 50 pets in costumes; and 25 decorated strollers.

The parade begins at 2:00 PM at Mt. Vernon Avenue, south of E. Bellefonte and continues down to the Mount Vernon Recreational Center play 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. Carlos Juarez, a 5th grade student from Mount Vernon Community School, will be serving as our Grand Marshal.

This year’s parade will feature awards for Best Pet Costume, Best Decorated Business, Best Decorated Home, and Best Decorated Stroller. Judges include elected officials & City Dignitaries.
