Central West End Halloween Street Party

When: Sat., Oct. 29, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. 2016

The Central West End (Euclid and Maryland avenues; www.cwescene.com/halloween) does Halloween in a big way with its famous all-day street party. The kids' costume contest and parade starts at 11 a.m., this year featuring Cinderella in her carriage leading the way, followed by the Moolah Shriners in their YOMO cars. At noon the kids can go trick-or-treating at participating businesses, and then at 1 p.m. the famous costumed dog parade starts. At 2 p.m. live music and street entertainers rock you sweetly while you eat and party before for the main event: The CWE's infamous adults-only costume contest with its $2,500 top prize. Registration for the contest starts at 6 p.m., and you must be present at the 10 p.m. finals to win.
