ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

It’s been a busy week in Alexandria, starting off with Halloween on Monday and continuing through to major changes for Potomac Yard and the former Landmark Mall site.

The city had not one, but two big Halloween celebrations: a parade in Del Ray on Sunday and trick-or-treating along Lee Street in Old Town on Monday.

At least one person may have gotten a little too carried away, however: a 61-year-old woman was arrested on Halloween for being a felon in possession of a stun gun and driving an unlicensed vehice.
