Get all the little ghosts and goblins ready for the annual Section Halloween Parade! Children in second grade and under are invited to join us in costume to march up the hill to Phillips Hall at Chevy Chase United Methodist Church where the parade participants and their families are invited for a pizza party before they go off trick or treating!

The parade (with the necessary photo ops) begins at the Gazebo Park at 4:45 p.m. on Halloween. In the event of rain, the parade will begin at Phillips Hall. We love having older siblings and parents watch the parade but to be certain that the little ones won't be frightened by older children, we limit the parade to second grade and under.

If you're interested in decorating Phillips Hall for the event or helping with serving pizza, please contact the Village Manager.


This year's Party-in-the-Park had an impressive attendance-some 400 residents joined in the fun. The train had its own station this year to the delight of young and old alike. The carousel, another favorite, took the little ones on an exciting ride...but the "throw up" machine (the "human whirl"), that was amazing. . .in two respects: 1. No one threw up and 2. Everyone LOVED it! The fire station slide in the park was tons of fun, the obstacle course a challenge. This year's newest attractions, other than the "throw up machine" were the face paint lady, who transformed dozens of faces in short order-imaginative, fanciful faces flew by on their way to the wonderful catered dinner, or off to the Photo booth, another new attraction that almost 90 groups used!

The event would not have been possible without the help of all those who did everything from set up to clean up, manned the rides and baked the most amazing cakes! Special thanks to everyone on the Council who worked to make this such a success and thanks to Jen Roberti for organizing the cakes and the cakewalk, this year, one of the most exciting ever.

The evening finished with the ice cream man's arrival with free ice cream for everyone and lots of folks walking home with delicious cakes and cupcakes!
