On Monday, Oct. 31, as we have done for the past 26 years, kids, pets, and their parents will dress up and parade a few blocks around Westside Costa Mesa's Canyon Park neighborhood (aka the Freedom Homes). As in previous years, please line-up at the corner of Oak and Republic at 4:15pm, and we will get the parade started at 4:30. This year, parade organizers Mary and Matthew of Village Green Real Estate will award prizes for the best costumes in the following 3 categories: best pet costume, best child costume (under 12 years), and best adult costume. Neighborhood personalities (to be announced soon) will be the judges and the awards will be given out immediately after the parade ends at the corner of Oak and National. It's all over by 5:30 so you can get to the serious trick or treating!
