The Greater Remington Improvement Association (GRIA) announces the 4th annual family-friendly Halloween block party extravaganza, HAUNTINGDON AVENUE on Saturday October 29, 2011 from 5-8.

Each year the residents of the 2900 block of Huntingdon Avenue decorate their porches and provide tons of family-friendly games, interactive activities, trick-or-treating and other Halloween fun. This year’s activities include a “haunted house”, face painting, a recording booth to tell ghost stories, a parade of giant puppets, a costume contest, and performances by local musicians Ricky and Lennon La Ricci. The spooky-festive-spectacle features artwork and decorations made by Remington youth created in the community-run Porch Art weekly workshops. It will also feature décor made by adult residents at community craft gatherings. All are welcome to join the festivities and celebrate Halloween in a fun and safe environment.
