The 63rd annual Leesburg Halloween Parade, hosted and organized by the Leesburg Kiwanis Club, will be held on the evening of Thursday, Oct. 31 through downtown Leesburg.
Leesburg’s Halloween parade is one of the oldest in the eastern United States, first held in 1957.
The parade will begin at 6 p.m., starting in the front field at Ida Lee Park and proceed down King Street to Fairfax Street.
King Street will be closed to traffic from Battlefield Parkway 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 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, which will collect items toward the end of the parade. Go toloudounhunger.orgfor a list of most needed items.
