Come one, come all to the October 31st Halloween Parade!
Participate or spectate . . . come see your neighbors in costume or not and join in the Halloween spirit.
Assembly time is 1:45 p.m. at Beach 5 and starts promptly at 2 p.m.
The parade marches down Waterway Drive with a police siren blasting and a fire truck leading the way. The Justic High School Band follows along playing and marching; children wearing Halloween costumes march behind; parents pull babies in wagons and strollers; some adults in costume stroll by; a police car pulls up the rear until the parade reaches Beach 3.
No tricks, just treats await parade goers at Beach 3! Enjoy lemonade, water, and homemade cookies from the Woman's Club best bakers! LBWC Members: Please login and go to Members Only to sign up to provide cookies.
We gratefully thank Jeannie Meyer and Eliana Turina who organize the Lake Barcroft community parades and refreshments on behalf of the Woman's Club every year! When you see Jeannie and Eliana, tell them how much these events mean to you, your family and neighbors. They would love to hear from you!
On a bright, sunny day, many donned in red, white and blue came to celebrate our nation's historic day! Much appreciation goes to LBWC Community Events Chair Jeannie Meyer who brought the Lake Barcroft Kazoo Band, Bailey's Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department and the Fairfax County Police to lead the parade!
In stars and stripes tradition, many families joined in waving flags provided by Alison Oleson as we walked together with music and celebratory cheers down Waterway Drive to Beach 3.
We concluded the parade by enjoying tasty cookies and refreshing lemonade together. Many thanks to refreshments organizer Eliana Turina and the many volunteers who brought and/or served cookies and lemonade for all to partake at Beach 3. They were:
