Parades and Costumes

Burns Park School has always had a Halloween parade where all the children march out of the school and then go around the block. Evelyn was in the parade every year from kindergarten to sixth grade. The school orchestra played music for the parade. The music teacher beat the big drum. One year, Evelyn played her clarinet, and she also wore a clarinet costume. Another time, she was a mummy wrapped in toilet paper.

When she was three, Evelyn was Raggedy Ann.

Another year, Megan was Dracula:
