Howling Fun in Alexandria

Halloween parade returns to Del Ray.

Guys and ghouls turned out in full force as the 26th annual Del Ray Halloween parade returned to Mount Vernon Avenue Oct. 30.

A citywide tradition, thousands turned out to participate in the event, including city officials, members of City Council and the Alexandria City High School marching “Zombie Band.”

Sponsored by the Del Ray Business Association, the parade kicked off at Mount Vernon Avenue south of E. Bellefonte and ended at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center field where live music was performed by Mars Rodeo.  An awards ceremony was held for best pet and stroller contests as well as best decorated house and business.
