Not only are we having a “monster” sale this weekend (Sat 11-6 & Sun 12-6 both shops) at Stars, but Sunday 10/30 at 3pm, the 11th Annual Sellwood-Moreland Monster March Halloween parade will kick off! You can even snap up a great Monster March t-shirts (of all sizes) and totes online–Sellwood artist, Gary Hirsch, created this year’s fantastic design. To make it more fun and festive neighborhood biz, Sweet Pea’s, will be handing out balloons again this year!
The Sellwood-Moreland Monster March was created by Kathy Diamond and Lynn Van Horn (with a lot of help from Liz Cerabino-Hess, the former, former owner of Haggis McBaggis!) and is sponsored by the Sellwood-Westmoreland Business Association. The parade will start at Llewellyn Elementary (6301 SE 14th Ave) school at 3pm on Sunday, October 30th, and be lead, as it has since the beginning, by our local fire engine! You can view the route here.
The march has always been about community, with a special emphasis on our schools. True to Kathy Diamond’s original vision and any profits made by the sale of the official Hirsch-designed T-shirts (buy here!), or other merchandise, will be given to the foundations of our neighborhood schools: Llewellyn Elementary, Duniway Elementary and Sellwood Middle. Please feel encouraged to support these foundations by giving at thinkschools.org! HAVE FUN!
Here are some TERRIFYING photos from Stars to help get you in the spirit…
Not really spooky, but very pretty and Halloween-y!
