Torrential morning rains gave way to sunny skies Oct. 27 just in time for the ghoulish stars to come out along Mount Vernon Avenue for the 23rd Annual Del Ray Halloween Parade.
Participants included costumed families, pets and decorated strollers showing off their most original and scariest Halloween garb. Awards were given for Best Pet Costume, Best Decorated Business, Best Decorated Home and Best Decorated Stroller during a brief ceremony.
Sponsored by the Del Ray Business Association, the parade ended at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center fields, where goodie bags for children were handed out. Live musical entertainment was provided by Mars Rodeo.
