Somewhere in Silver Spring . . . . the skeleton house was my pick for the best Halloween Display I saw this year.
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!

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:
