Leesburg, VA (October 10, 2018) – The 62nd annual Leesburg Halloween Parade, hosted and organized by the Leesburg Kiwanis Club, will be held on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, through downtown Leesburg.
One of the oldest Halloween parades in the eastern United States, first held in 1957, the parade will begin at 6:00 p.m., starting in the front field at Ida Lee Park and proceeding down King Street to Fairfax Street.
King Street will be closed to traffic from Bridgette Place to Catoctin Circle, beginning at 5:30 p.m. No cross traffic will be allowed across King Street during the parade. The street will be reopened once clean-up operations by the Town’s Public Works Department are completed. Motorists should plan on alternate travel routes during this time and follow the designated detours.
Those attending the event are encouraged to bring food donations for Loudoun Hunger Relief, who will collect items towards the end of the parade. Please visit www.loudounhunger.org for a list of most needed items.
