Halloween Parade

On October 31st, an over 100 year tradition continues as students from Washington Elementary, ranging from Kindergarten to 6th grade, go on a trick-or-treating parade around Point Richmond. The children are escorted by Richmond Police officers who clear the streets for children to walk safely. Merchants on every corner gather outside with treats (many in costume) to hand out candy to the 400 plus students. This is a highlight of our school’s long-standing tradition and the day does not disappoint. It’s a great day to be had by all. We thank the many volunteers, parents, teachers and staff who help make this wonderful event happen!

Please check the calendar for the exact dates of these annual events.
