I will never tire of seeing children in their Halloween costumes, roaming the streets (or the plaza or the Reston Town Center) in search of the perfect treat. Or any treat. The joy is a pure delight. Second only, perhaps, to seeing dogs and cats dressed in adorably costumes, roaming the plaza in search of the perfect treat.
On Saturday, October 29, I’m going to get my fill of both. And you can too. I hope you can come out and enjoy two delightful Reston Halloween events.
Howl-o-Ween on the Plaza
Saturday, October 29, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Being this cute isn’t so ruff. Especially if you are a dog lover! Come down and see the dogs (and a few cats) of Reston in their How-o-Ween finery. There are games, there are contests, and there are treats for your furry friends. Festivities start at 1 and continue until 3. The costume contest starts at 1:30.
Trick or Treat at Reston Town Center
Saturday, October 29, noon to 4 p.m.
On your way to or from Howl-o-Ween, stop by Reston Town Center for a little trick-or-treating. Any child in wearing a costume (maybe one to match the dog?) can celebrate this special day by visiting participating retailers and the Information Center for treats and goodies. Look for the pumpkin flyer in the window. If you aren’t coming over to Howl-o-ween, be sure to enjoy a spooky, magical performance for all ages by Turley the Magician at 1 pm in Fountain Square.
Happy Halloween everyone!
