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!
