Leesburg Kiwanis Club to Host Halloween Wave Parade

Halloween Parade

Leesburg, VA (October 15, 2020) – Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the Leesburg Kiwanis Club will take a new approach to its annual Halloween parade.

On Saturday, October 31, two wave-parades, featuring eight decorated vehicles, will travel through Leesburg neighborhoods, at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Detailed routes are now available on the Kiwanis’s website. Residents may also choose to download the “GLYMPSE” application and follow along on their smartphones. The link will be posted to social media prior to each parade.

Everyone is asked to practice social distancing during the parade. There will be no distribution of candy. Non-perishable food items, for Loudoun Hunger Relief, will not be collected this year.  Instead, residents are encouraged to make donations online at  

Leesburg’s Halloween parade is one of the oldest in the eastern United States, first held in 1957. For more information about the event, please email Bob Wright at or visit
