Dear Bloomingdale Residents,

This Halloween, join your neighbors in renewing a fun tradition while adding some steps to your daily count.  Bloomingdale Fun and Fit (BFF) invites Bloomingdale neighbors to Trick or Treat with us on Tuesday, October 31, from 6-8pm!  

If you would like to join the fun, meet BFF between 6 - 8pm at the corner of 1St and Rhode Island NW.  We’ll pass out treats to kids in costume, and our costume contest begins at 7pm. Or dress up your dog – we’ll judge those costumes after the kids. We’ll also have a Halloween photo booth set up and will be posting to our Instagram account.

If you are welcoming Trick or Treaters at your door this year, tell us where you are (just your block) by completing this <1 font="" minute="" survey="">. We are creating a map of the street blocks (100 S St. NW, for example) where trick or treaters can ring the bell and also the distance covered for those of you looking to get some steps this Halloween!

If you’re passing out candy, be sure to turn on your porch light and post the Bloomingdale Fun and Fit pumpkin on your door or front window.  

Trick or Treating is a chance for Bloomingdalers to walk through our beautiful neighborhood, greet each other, enjoy some treats, and continue an annual tradition.  Join us for the fun!

See you on Halloween,


With an inclusive spirit, Bloomingdale Fun and Fit connects the city’s
resources and Bloomingdale residents’ interests to make Bloomingdale the most funfitand friendly neighborhood in Washington, D.C.

BFF, which is a committee within the Bloomingdale Civic Association, partners with local businesses, coaches, and instructors to plan a healthy living event each month that brings together neighbors from all backgrounds to have fun and get to know each other.
