More on Sunday’s Maple Leaf Parade of Costumes – plus a neighborhood pet costume contest

October 29th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Here’s an update on the neighborhood Parade of Costumes, which runs from 2-4 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday Oct. 30.

Organizer Donna Hartmann-Miller emails: “We are planning on this, rain or shine, so dress appropriately and carry an umbrella.”

More information is in our earlier post, here.

Email with questions, comments, or to volunteer. She continues:

“Also, thanks to the businesses who will be participating this year (and for volunteering to join in, responding to this last-minute request): Peaks Frozen Custard, Roosevelt Alehouse, Maxine’s Floral & Gift, Cloud City Coffee, ADWAS, Fine Impressions Gallery, Cafe Javasiti, San Marco Grocery, Kona Kitchen, Blue Saucer, Reckless Video, and Maple Leaf Ace Hardware.

“Roosevelt Alehouse and Maple Leaf Pharmacy are allowing us to use their parking lot to start out the parade and The Perkins School is letting us use their parking lot to end the parade and serve snacks on – many thanks!

“Also thanks to Maple Leaf Life for putting out the word we needed a volunteer and for publicizing this.

“And a last thanks to Edgar from COA and Brooke W. for volunteering (if anyone else would like to help out, we can still use some route support – email me).”

In addition, All The Best Pet Care, 8050 Lake City Way N.E, emailed this morning to say they are repeating their Howl-O-Ween contest today and Sunday.

What could be cuter than pets dressed in Halloween costumes? In our opinion, very little! Bring in your dressed-up pet to be entered into our Halloween pet costume contest. There will be a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place prize. All judging will be done on the night of October 31st and winners will be notified shortly thereafter. Come in anytime during business hours on Saturday the 29th or Sunday the 30th for some early trick-or-treating!
