he little monsters and princesses along with Iron Man and Superman ran excitedly around the Freeport Recreation Center. Children of all ages dressed in their best Halloween costumes participated in the Freeport Recreation Center annual Halloween Parade and celebration last Tuesday. Freeporters as well as families from neighboring communities attended the Halloween festivities. Children excitedly took their shoes off and jumped on the indoor bounce houses.
“Every year we come to this as a family,” Baldwinite Sean Mufson said. “It’s a great start for us before we go trick or treating and then home to pass out candy too.”
While a clown made balloon animals, swords and heart flowers, another clown made cotton candy for the kids. Cartoon and video game characters Mario and Luigi were on site high-fiving and hanging out the kids. Freeport mom of two, Lisa Csenscits, stood in line with her two boys, Edward and Luis, awaiting for their turn to have balloon swords made.
“We’re here to celebrate with my sons’ friends,” said Csencsits. “I think this is a nice safe way to celebrate Halloween.”
