Cleveland Hollow'een 2011

Cleveland Holloway celebrates holidays like no other neighborhood in Durham!

We keep a community costume chest of donated costumes to loan out to kids (if you have costumes you'd like to donate, contact Natalie Spring!), we give out candy to neighbors who don't have it in their budget to hand out candy, and we parade around the neighborhood. After all of that, we watch movies and drink warm cider.

We loaned out 44 costumes to kids this year and had many more kids join in the costume parade. We also handed out 25 bags of sponsored candy so that our neighborhood kids could have more houses to trick or treat at. Despite the rain and icky weather, this year had the largest turnout to date.

We gathered at Oakwood Park on a cold wet Halloween to get glow sticks and start trick or treating with a parade!

We had over 75 kids and adults join in the parade and then over a hundred neighbors trick or treat on Halloween! Thanks to all of the neighbors who handed out candy, the kids were all very excited!
