MONROE, CT — Monsters, superheroes and characters from fairy tales could be seen among the more than 80 preschoolers, wearing Halloween costumes, while trick-or-treating at Edith Wheeler Library and Monroe Town Hall Thursday morning.
The annual event made a comeback after a one year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though it was held outdoors.
Families had gathered on the back lawn of the library to enjoy bubbles and Halloween music before the parade began. Staff members handed out candy at decorated tables along the sidewalk.
The procession continued to the front of Town Hall, where there was an outdoor display of Halloween decorations and town employees handed out treats.
It ended when the parade moved past the police station, where officers gave out candy.
“Everyone had a great time,” said Wendy Fox, a children’s library assistant at EWML.
