Halloween parade in Del Ray

Following a pandemic-induced hiatus, the popular Del Ray Halloween parade returned Oct. 24 with a turnout that was better than ever as the annual event celebrated its 25th year. From goblins, ghosts and ghouls, Mount Vernon Avenue turned into a colorful sea of creative costumed characters that included a zombie marching band. Local businesses joined in the fun, with Pork Barrel BBQ setting up a play corn box complete with 1,000 pounds of corn for frolicking. Contests were held virtually for Best Decorated House, Best Decorated Business, Best Group Costume and Best Pet Costume. www.visitdelray.com
