Letter: DCA grateful for Mom’s Morning In Halloween parade support

The DCA held its annual Mom’s Morning In Halloween parade on Friday, Oct. 26.

To the Editor:

The Darien Community Association (DCA) Mom’s Morning In Halloween Parade is a more than 25 year town tradition for our youngest residents. This year, over 100 children enjoyed trick-or-treating with their parents/caregivers along the Post Road, on their way to see The Amazing Andy perform a magic show in Tilley Pond Park. This would not have been possible without the Darien Police, who direct traffic, and the enthusiastic support of numerous businesses, who hand out goodies to the children along the way.  

Trick-or-treaters were greeted by downtown businesses at the parade.

The DCA would like to thank the Darien Police, Palmer’s Market (who provided doughnut holes for the magic show), and the following merchants for their trick-or-treating participation: Aquarius, Bella Pietra, Browne & Co., Coldwell Banker, Couleur Provence, Darien Barber Shop, Darien Station Variety, Darien Upholstery, Good Goods, Jade Nail and Spa, Jem Lee Cleaners, Kumon Learning Center, and Lanphier Day Spa and Salon.

A tub of treats was one of the many ways Darien businesses used their facilities to creatively offer candy.


The parade was followed by Amazing Andy performing at Tilley Pond Park.
