Parade of Costumes returns! (plus a carnival at Olympic View)

October 22nd, 2015 by Mike

Update 9 a.m. There’s a Facebook page, too.

This came overnight from Donna Hartmann-Miller:

Big kids, little kids, furry ones too – show off your costume while parading the Maple Leaf neighborhood. Rain or Shine — so dress appropriately and carry an umbrella.

The parade will start at 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 25, at the north end of the parking lot at Rick’s Chevron, winding thru and trick-or-treating and ending at Maple Leaf Park. Join in the whole route or part of the route (entire route is about 1.25 miles and will hopefully take about an hour to walk, including the trick-or-treating), whatever works with your schedule, walking endurance, and the length of your legs.

If you live along the route and want to hand out treats, we ask you bring any goodies to the sidewalk so trick-or-treating can keep moving along the route. If you don’t live along the route and would like to hand out treats, meet us at the end of the parade at the park. How many participants? Plan on 150, although the weather will no doubt affect that number.

Date/Time: Sunday, October 25th, 3 p.m.

Start Point: Rick’s Chevron, Fifth Avenue Northeast and Northeast 85th Street

End Point: Maple Leaf Park [Read more →]
