Did you know? Halloween in the Castro started with a children's costume parade thrown by Cliff's Variety in 1948 that was revived by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in the '90s, yes, for children. Really. Anyway, this year, the Mission District has its own children's costume parade as part of the second annual Halloween Party thrown by the neighborhood's corollary of Cliff's. Craft activities? Of course! They include making gross-looking heads out of apples and a customized cookie/cupcake station. Then, a costume parade at noon, led by a boombox wagon — sidewalk only, unfortunately; we feel the kids would have the full run of the street, in a perfect world — capped with costume prizes donated by local recycled-stuff-using company Green Toys. If you are not napping by that time, you can get a load of the fairytale puppet show. And who knows what the future may bring?
