Due to the pandemic, Greenbelt had to forego its grand Labor Day Festival this year, and most of its Halloween festivities, too. No Kids Costume Parade and Judging. No Pumpkin Carving and Pumpkin Walk.
But decorations and scary displays were as elaborate as ever! So we thank Greenbelt’s Halloween fanatics for all their work and creativity. I hope I’ve captured their spirit in this video.
Next, a video by Phoebe McFarb, station manager of Greenbelt Access Television, zeroes in on the lakeside display and interviews the genius behind it – Marc Siegel.
Sidewalk Art, Too
The chalk artwork seen in the video was created by students at Eleanor Roosevelt High School, organized by art teacher Chrissy Wilkin. The theme was “Heroes.”
