Halloween Parade tricks and treats

This Wednesday, Oct. 29., Westport families spooked Halloween by coming a few days early at the annual Halloween Parade.

Most kids, ranging from a few months old to high-school-aged, gussied themselves up to strut the streets of downtown Westport in search of candy. Many stores participated, with employees in garb as well to hand out treats to the children.

State Representative Gail Lavielle summarized with a smile, “It’s great for the kids to have fun and the adults to play along and relax. It’s just a great way to be with people on a happy occasion.”
