Halloween is Over - Time to Think Turkey and the Annual Silver Spring Thanksgiving Parade

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc MD 82788 DC SP97220

Somewhere in Silver Spring . . . . the skeleton house was my pick for the best Halloween Display I saw this year. 
Silver Spring yard Halloween 2009
My photos do not do it justice because they are taken in the daytime.  There are skulls mounted on the gutters with fire spewing out of them (at night) like funeral pyres.  Still can't figure out how they did that?

At night this yard really looks like a graveyard with skeletons hanging in trees, coffins, sitting in chairs, hanging from the highest window, sprawled on the ground in pieces. Someone is very talented and would be super at settting scenes.

Now that we are into November that means the annual Montgomery County Thanksgving Parade is aroung the corner.  The Parade takes place on the weekend before Thanksgiving, Saturday November 21st this year. 
Time: 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon

Save the Date for the event that heralds the beginning of the Holiday Season!
Downtown Silver Spring on Georgia Avenue from Sligo to Silver Plaza on Ellsworth Drive to Fenton Street.

There will be Marching Bands, including the Redskins Marching Band and many High Schools from around the county, Macy's Parade type Balloons, floats, vintage cars, dogs, horses, ethnic dancing groups, police groups and fire trucks with Isiah Leggett as the grand marshall this year.

The Silver Spring Regional Center is looking for volunteer help with the Parade: 
We need volunteers for the Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade to act as balloon handlers- leading the giant Macy-like Thanksgiving balloons and dressing up in costumes to be on the floats. Also, we need assistance with set-up and break-down. 

This opportunity is great for Groups!
Small Grp: 3-10: YES
Medium Grp: 10-25: YES

The hours are from 7:30am to 1:30pm (you need to be present the whole time) on Saturday, November 21. Dress warmly, as you will be outside. You should try and wear black as your outside layer color. Once you arrive, you will be assigned a position and given directions about your volunteer job. Volunteers meet at the new fire station at 8110 Georgia Avenue.  If you or your group is up for this Contact:
