Bellefonte Wizards were asked to lead in their Hometown Parade

Special Olympics Virginia, Area 26 Team, the Bellefonte Wizards are loved in their Alexandria neighborhood of Del Ray. On Sunday, October 27, 2013, they were asked to lead in the annual Halloween Parade. The team proudly wore their uniforms, and marched down Mt. Vernon Avenue, Del Ray's Main Street. The team enjoyed hearing their names and cheers from the crowd. The team said that this was the greatest thrill they ever had next from going to the State Championships. Coach Peter and Coach Rosita marched along with the team as Coach Renee' took pictures from the stands. The team had a cook-out after the event with a live band for a courtyard dance. This was another moment for the Wizards' Book of Memories.
