Poll: Are you excited for Halloween yet?

We’re nearing the end of the first full week of October, and around the city, various homes and local businesses are starting to get into the spooky mood.

Visit Alexandria has put together a roundup of Halloween-themed activities around town. While the pandemic is still ongoing, there’s been progress since last October when some iconic Alexandria Halloween events (like Lee Street trick-or-treating) were shut down.

After you vote, be sure to share what costume you’re putting together — if any — in the comments.
