Bloomfield Halloween Parade

A gallery from Thursday evening’s Halloween Parade in the Bloomfield neighborhood, Pittsburgh PA.  One officer said they expected a crowd of ten thousand lining the parade route down Liberty Avenue.  It was chilly.  The little ones dressed up in costumes, so cute, thrilled to catch candy and treats thrown from the convertibles and others walking. I saw lots of unicorns!  All sizes.

Classic Cars – Grand Parade- Kick Off St. Raphael’s Bazaar

A police car. The Bomb Squad.  A trolley.  About 8 classic cars.  Catch some candy and Mardi Gras beads.  The Boy Scouts marched,  then a Bagpipe and Drum group, the Morningside Cheerleaders.

We had a lot of fun watching the parade in the Morningside neighborhood, not too far from home.

We went to the festival and the man in the information booth was a colleague from the first school I taught in the city -1989.  Small world.  We had a lot of fun and the grandkids loved the spin art and crafts in the Kid Zone.  They loved jumping the bouncy house.

On the way home we drove to Giant Eagle and got ice cream and cones to eat at home. Fresh berries.  Summer!
