A Halloween Parade and dogs in Del Ray

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams
O.K. I want to start this Blog with a confession. I'll see you later Father Bob. This is a real estate type confession. I did not go to open houses this Sunday. And, not because of the generous margaritas they serve at Los Tios Grill on Mt. Vernon Ave. Today was the Del Ray Halloween parade. With a drum and fife band  leading the merry marchers. This year was the largest  parade yet. we don't just have the kids we have whole families dressed up. One family were  the characters from the wizard of Oz. The Mommy Daddy and child penguin trio all in home made costumes were cute on toast.  As were the TeleTubbies, Mom, Dad, and two toddlers. The wee ones stole the show as fairies and tigers, pea pods and one little hot chili pepper. We had variations on a few themes and, it's fun to see how many pumpkins and pirates you can spot. I do believe though I only saw I Albert Einstein. The strollers were not just for tired feet. Not in Del Ray the strollers were were decorated and had their own judging category. First place this year went to the the Emerald city. We do not have a contest for children's costumes as it would be to hard to chose. OF course we do have a dog contest. The winners were 1st.--Red Riding Hood and Grandma, 2 mixed shepherd type dogs. 2nd. Bo Peep and her Sheep the cutest white Labradoodle you have ever seen. Next came a pair of Pembroke Corgis dressed as Tigger and Eeyore and a cutie of a mixed breed dressed as a king being pulled in his castle. Our own Vola Lawson and Adem Ebbin were the pet judges I think they did a fine job. But would have placed Truffles and Amber the Dachshund/ Chihuahua that were dresses as a dragon and a princess in the top 2 places. Our next big get together her in Del Ray is the lighting of the Christmas tree on Dec.1st. Now doesn't Del Ray sound like a nice place to live?

I went to my open house.  It sounds like you had a lot more fun than I did.  I had one person show up.

I am trying to find the date for this year's parade in Del Ray.  I usually take my granddaughter and she thoroughly enjoys making a scarecrow for our front porch.


do you know when the parade will be this year?
