A week after all of the decorations and costumes had been put away across the world, Del Ray was hanging on as the last bastion of Halloween. A rain storm on Oct. 29 forced a delay until Nov. 5, and while there was still some rain, the community showed up in force. The parade started at Mt. Vernon Avenue south of E. Bellefonte street and worked its way towards the Mt. Vernon Recreation Center, where there were free refreshments.
