The 76th Annual Vienna Virginia Halloween Parade!
Vienna Time Machine!
This parade is full of Marching Bands, Fire Engines, Dancers, Floats and kids… and more kids. One friend who recently moved back to London always commented how “you Americans sure love your fire engines with sirens blazing!”
This year I’ll probably be walking with the pet owners. My daughter will be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and our dog will be Toto, he’s a Cairn Terrier (born for the role). At this point, I may be the Scarecrow!
The primary grandstand will be set up at the Vienna Town Green, and my tip is to be nearby since this is where each group will definitely perform. It’s busy, so be prepared to get there early if you plan to sit down to watch.
So be prepared for some noise. But really, the 76th Vienna Virginia Halloween Parade will be a lot of fun and you should try and make it.
Everyone is invited and the parade usually lasts about 90 minutes to two hours. It all starts down at Branch Road SE, then up Maple Avenue past the Vienna Town Green, and then turns on Center Street and ends in front of Town Hall.
After that, stop in at the Vienna Inn!
This is one of the events that helped Vienna make Money Magazine’s list of Best Places to Live.
