Halloween in Loudoun

photoTimes-Mirror Staff Photo/Beverly Denny Hasan Farman, 12, of Sterling, points the way to his group’s next trick-or-treating destination at the Dulles Town Center for “Malloween.” His twin brother Husan wore a white mask, and his cousins Tiba, 5, dressed up as a ladybug, and Fatima, 8, was a black fairy. The family immigrated from Iraq four years ago. The girls’ mother says there is a holiday similar to Halloween in Iraq and they have been participating in Halloween since coming here.

Hundreds of costumed trick-or-treaters came to the Dulles Town Center on Halloween for their “Malloween” event.

Director of marketing Dan Cook says the 13th year of Halloween events at the mall “was definitely our busiest year ever,” in part because the Leesburg Halloween Parade was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. The mall distributed $5 thousand worth of candy to more than 130 stores to give out to trick-or-treaters. They refilled the stores’ supplies at 7:15 p.m. with additional candy; some stores bought extra candy for the kids too. Cook says Malloween is always the busiest event the mall hosts.

The Lovettsville Community Center held their annual Trunk-or-Treat event in the parking lot on Halloween and Old Town Purcellville had a Halloween Block Party the Saturday before.
