Children wore costumes of their favorite characters, from princesses and dinosaurs to Spiderman, during Edith Wheeler Memorial Library’s annual Halloween Parade Tuesday morning. The procession moved from the Children’s Library to the main level, where library staff handed out candy.
But the festivities didn’t end there. The parade moved outside and along the sidewalk, en route to Monroe Town Hall, where children visited the land use offices and hallways, collecting candy from town employees — several dressed as characters themselves — along the way.
Heidi Meade, the assistant director of municipal finance, went all out with her annual Halloween display inside the Town Hall lobby. The display includes an archway of pumpkins, vampires and a witch, with bats and ghosts hanging from the ceiling among the many decorations.
Families stopped in front of the display for photos.
The parade ended with a visit to the Monroe Police Department, where officers handed out candy in the lobby.
