I just moved to the area and I was told about the block party for Halloween that has been going on annually for a while. I heard rumors that this may not happen this year. Does anyone have any information on this?

Thanks!

I hope this is not true. It is one of my favorite parts of living in MtP.

Although Anita (I think that's the lady that usually coordinates it) is going to out of the country this year, I heard from someone in my apartment building that our neighbors across the street already submitted the petition.

Keep your fingers crossed!

That's Athena, and I understand that she's in Haiti. I don't know if anyone has picked up the task or not. -- Jack

I live in an apartment in Athena's house--she is indeed in Haiti but others have worked to secure permit to close the street down for Halloween evening. There will be a shadow puppet show followed by costume contest, probably starting around 7:00--stay tuned for more info!

Hey
I recently moves to this neighborhood, arriving from France, and I have a stupid question : when does the Halloween party take place, on Saturday or on Sunday ?
Thanks for your help !
It's going to be my first Halloween and I don't want to miss any of it Smile

Well, that's good news! People would have missed the Lamont Street Halloween event. Thanks to those who rose to the task in Athena's absence. (And plaudits to Athena for her work in Haiti.) -- Jack

Passing along some additional details:

The puppet show will start around 6:30 at 17th and Lamont - The Shadow Senators will present "Two Local Tales of Terror", a shadow puppet show about DC, the Demon Cat and the curse of the Hope diamond (about 20 minutes, may be a little scary for very young children.)

The costume contest will start at about 7, also at 17th and Lamont. Bring your best animal/witch/ghoul/costume to show off - prizes will be given!

All are welcome to bring out any cauldrons of cider or s'more roasting equipment.

If you are interested in helping to set up or in carrying the stage, be on Lamont St. around 5pm and we'll see what needs to be done.

Here's to another year of Halloweening!
