PHOTOS: Rain Doesn't Stop Hundreds from Trick-or-Treating in Fairfax [WITH VIDEO]

There was no shortage of creative costumes at the annual downtown Fairfax trick-or-treat parade. Add your Halloween photos to our slideshow!


The gray and rainy weather didn’t deter hundreds from gathering in downtown Fairfax for the town’s annual Trick or Treat parade. 

The parade began at 5 p.m. at the 9 Broadway movie theater, moved down Broadway to Bolinas Road, ending at Bolinas Park. Downtown merchants handed out everything from candy to apples to temporary tattoos.

It was raining lightly when the parade started, but the rain was picking up by the time most of the trick-or-treaters and families had arrived in Bolinas Park, which fortunately was mostly shaded underneath the redwood trees. 

The nearby Dominga Avenue and Napa Street were closed to traffic from 6 to 9 p.m. for trick-or-treating.


Did you participate in the parade or go trick or treating later in the night? How was it? Were you worried about the weather?
