Children's costume parade in Dupont Circle

Filed Under:

Thanks to a DC daddy for sharing this announcement with us:

For the second year in a row, a group of NW DC parents are planning a children's costume parade on Halloween evening in Dupont Circle. Babies, toddler, preschoolers, and young school-age kiddos are welcome (with parents/caregivers, of course).

Participants should meet at the Dupont Circle fountain around 5 p.m., and the event will wrap up 6-ish. (Fair weather only! If it rains, don't come - You'll be wet and lonely.)

One of the organizer dads, David, says, "It was originally conceived for infants and toddlers who were really too young to head out in the neighborhood and ring doorbells. So, a few parents brought 'healthy' treats and positioned themselves on the outer benches of the circle, and the kids had fun running from bench to bench picking out treats for themselves. We had such a good turnout and the kids had so much fun that we're planning to do it again this year."

"After some greetings and photos, we'll parade the kids around the outer circle around 5:30 p.m. If you have a spouse or friend who can make it too, please have them come. The extra bodies are great for stationing around the outer circle to hand out the little goodies that you'll bring. The more the merrier!"
