As is the tradition in our house, we have an early Halloween dinner, take photos of the kids with my in-laws, then head to the Leesburg Halloween Parade.
My in-laws always take their portrait with the boys in their Halloween outfits and use that for their annual Christmas card. I’m not really sure how the tradition started, but now that we are 6 years into it, and have 2 boys to showcase, a tradition it has become.
If you are new to the area and/or have never been to the Leesburg Halloween parade, you’re truly missing out. Leesburg hosts 4 (I think it’s 4) parades a year. The Halloween parade is by far the most popular and usually attracts floats, bands and businesses from across Loudoun County.
