Costumes, Candy and Crafts: Halloween Fun for Kids in Downtown Delray

By Paula Detwiller


If you have kids, mark your calendar for this Saturday, October 26. It’s the official downtown Delray Beach kickoff to Halloween!

The fun begins at 9 a.m. with the opening of the Delray GreenMarket at the Old School Square Park. The Delray Beach Center for the Arts will have a Halloween craft for kids at the Budding Artists booth all day.

Trick-or-treating begins at 11 a.m. at the GreenMarket and along Atlantic Avenue, followed by the annual children’s Halloween Parade at 1 p.m. Kids will line up for the parade at Old School Square—adjacent to the GreenMarket—and proceed east on Atlantic Avenue to Veterans Park. As a special treat, all parade participants will get free samples of Blue Bell ice cream.

Immediately following the Halloween Parade, all children are invited to join the City at Kidsfest, a free family event at Veterans Park.  Look for live entertainment, food vendors, a bounce house and a “make-and-take” craft area. Kidsfest will last until 4:00 pm.

So why not make a day of it?  Bring your little vampires, ballerinas and pirates to downtown Delray this Saturday and join us at the GreenMarket while you’re here. Hint: the GreenMarket is a great place for a healthy breakfast or lunch!
