Occoquan’s Finest Costume Parade and Contest!

October 24 from 10am to 12pm


THANK YOU for the tremendous support of our Haunt the Town Parade on Oct 24! We can’t wait for Saturday and look forward to a fantastically, spooooky event!

As promised, our utmost priority is to provide a safe, socially-distanced event for our community. For that reason, we are closing registration to keep our promise! Registration for this event is currently full.

If you are already registered, we look forward to seeing your COVID-creative costumes!


On October 24, 2020, from 10am to 12pm, the Town of Occoquan will be hosting our traditional family-friendly, Occoquan Costume Parade & Contest. Parade participants will line up in family groups or “quaranteams” of no more than 6 in socially-distanced spaces near Riverwalk at 125 Mill Street. Individuals will be assigned a number; groups will be assigned one number for the entire group. The parade down Mill Street will commence at 10am. Quaranteams will be asked to distance from one another by six feet at all times during the walk to River Mill Park. Once in the park, quaranteams will be asked to distance in our ten foot picnic circles in the grass while the costume judging contest takes place. $25 certificates will be awarded to 1st place winners in each costume category. This event is free and open to the public, but you must register so that we can control the number of participants.
