Happy Hill-O-Ween!!

TONIGHT!! October 30 5:30-7:30 pm

All you ghouls and ghosts are in for a treat tonight, it’s time for the annual Hill-O-Ween celebration at Eastern Market!

Hay rides, balloons, a moon bounce, carousel rides, face painting and lots of candy! Treat bags plus kiddie keyboards to the first 1000 Hill-o-ween-ers!

Hill-O-Ween is sponsored by the Von Schlegel Realty Team, Tunnicliff’s Tavern, and the Hill Rag. Volunteers are still needed. Contact Mike Holt or call (202) 355-5158.



Peregrine Espresso at 660 Pennsylvania Avenue will have some special Halloween cupcakes from Buzz both Friday and Saturday as well as dog biscuits for the furry trick-or-treaters.

Dress to impress: Customers who strut their stuff in costume and win the hearts of the staff will walk away with free Peregrine t-shirts. Babies and Toddlers will obviously have the upper hand in this contest.
