All the Saints Halloween Parade is Back
After a break for something truly scary, the annual Oregon Hill tradition is back.
This year the theme is “World on Fire Halloween Parade: A Funeral March for Billionaires and Beyond!”
The parade will start at 7 PM on October 31st, at Laurel and Main streets across from the Altria Theater and will work its way through the Oregon Hill neighborhood.
Though this event is free to the public (as it has been for 16 years!) it takes lots of hard work and money to make this beloved Richmond event happen! Please consider donating to help create a sustainable parade and help pay the artists and puppeteers for all the time and energy they put into manifesting this event. You can make a donation here.
World-famous Bread and Puppet (those of the giant puppets) will be joining in the parade. Mars/hades puppet with rocket ships and billionaires, vultures, hawks, snake dragons (so many massive puppets), stilts, flags, Music, and the Richmond magic with all the Saints flair.
Tour de Fall Line Donation Based this Year
The RVAMore website isn’t up to date with the new race information yet but I’m sure will be available soon.
RVA More’s Tour de Fall Line is back but a little different this year. All proceeds directly benefit rvaMORE to help enhance your outdoor experience on our local trails.
The entry fee is WAIVED.
Our only request is that you stop by the rvaMORE tent, say hello and drop 20 bucks into the trail fund wheelbarrow.
This event has been our premier fundraiser for a number of years; but without the aid stations, food, music, and beverages, we
elected to go with optional donations rather than an entry fee.
What to expect: You can choose to ride whatever distance you want and start at any point along the route. As always, GPS maps will be available for download.
The full course will be marked by volunteers. There will be no aid stations.
This is a ride of fun and self-sufficiency – the DNA of MTB riding.
Bring your friends or enjoy a solo soul ride for the day.
We’ll be hanging out all day.
We sincerely hope you can join us for a day of celebrating our city trail system!
