Get Out! It's Halloween on Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday

 by Peggy Robin

The thing about Halloween falling on a Monday is that you have a whole weekend of Halloween events before the actual date on October 31. Too many to list! So I've selected just one event for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

On Saturday, October 29, from 11 AM - 3 PM, it's HOWL-O-WEEN at the Guy Mason Community Center Dog Park, 3900 Calvert St NW, put on by the DC Department of Parks & Rec. 

Enter your doggie in the furry friends costume contest. Register here:


On Sunday, October 30, it's the SPOOKTACULAR at the Forest Hills Playground from 10 AM - 12 PM followed by Trick or Treating along Connecticut Avenue from 12 - 3 PM!!

Costumes! Spooky Stories! Magic! Everyone's favorite kid-friendly Halloween event is returning to Forest Hills Playground Sunday, October 30th from 10 AM - 12 PM. Parents and kids of all ages are invited to dress in their favorite costumes and gather at Forest Hills Playground for spooky-inspired activities followed by Trick or Treating at small businesses along Connecticut Ave in Wakefield, Forest Hills and Van Ness from 12-3 PM.
