Braemar's 2010 Halloween Spooktacular in Review

By
Real Estate Agent with Long and Foster REALTORS®, Gainesville, VA VA License # 0225089470

Today was Braemar's 2010 Halloween Spooktacular, held at Clareybrook Park.  What a great day for a parade, food and play time.  It was a bit chilly and windy, but the sun was shining and we enjoyed a beautful blue sky.

The parade started at 12:05 pm.  I was elected the leader of the pack.  The kids and I marched around the track surrounding the playground twice to Michael Jackson's Thriller playing in the background. 

We were sorry that not of all our participants were there at the start of the parade, but they all enjoyed prizes and food.  Although next year, we need to remember to have more food.  We had nearly twice the participants as we did in 2009.

Here's a slide show .  I snapped some photographs of the days events, costume contest winners and some of my personal favortie costumes.  Enjoy!

I just loved the barrel of monkeys jump house.  Great photos!  Sounds like everyone who attended had a fabulous time.

Donna:  I think they did.  But there were some that showed up too late for the parade and for food.  Just goes to show you it pays to be punctual.

Chris Ann - next year I will invite you and yours!  Do you make a mean chile?  If so, enter it and win!

 

And the candy to follow ain't so bad either...

Jay:  I used to make chili, don't anymore.  My husband has reactions to beans and tomatoes.  I think I will be getting in touch with you Monday or Tuesday for your home inspection services.

I leave Thursday to see Grandchild Number 1!  Will return Sunday night.  But give us a call!

 

 

It appears he has some attitude!

Jay:  I'll call you tomorrow.  This is for my home.  We've had a leak we can't fix and the home insurance company recommended we have our gutters checked to make sure they are attached correctly.  You were the first guy I thought of.

The little cop and the little dinosaur are my favorites.  They are just precious.  I can just picture that little boy growing up to be a police office and looking back on this photo and smiling.

You know you don’t actually have to be there at the start of the parade in order to see all of the parade. Go to the finish line and you’ll still see all of it, plus you won’t have to get up as early.

Jim:  To call it a parade in those terms is a gross overstatement.  It was two laps around a rather small playground.  The kids needed to be seen by the judges.

Is Braemar going to have another Halloween Spooktacular this year to celebrate Halloween?

Anne:  Yep.  They are going to host the same event again this year.  I was hoping for a different event, but I guess the philosophy is change is not good on the Braemar activities committee.
