Halloween Comes to Main Street

Kids and parents turn out to show off their finest.

The Huntington Village Halloween parade along Main Street brought out scores of children and their families to enjoy the festivities.

Proud parents and grandparents looked on as super heroes, princesses and goblins took center stage.

The parade was not limited to youngsters as many pets--and parents--were outfitted in costumes as well.

A wonderful brisk  and windy day with warm temperatures for the season brought many into town.

The Huntington Children’s Parade and opportunity to trick-or treat in the village is a highlight for my child, as well as for friends with small children that live in towns as far away as Port Jefferson and Great Neck. It provides an opportunity for children and parents alike to celebrate Halloween in a safe setting that is beneficial to all, while experiencing and enjoying the gem that is our wonderful town. This was my fourth year experiencing this lively event, and I am dismayed by the stores that do not wish to participate by placing signs up that state “Out of Candy” or “No Candy” at 11 AM. A small investment in candy sends a significant message of goodwill toward the residents of Huntington, while increasing store traffic. I didn’t plan on buying anything from The Potting Shed, but did after my child walked away with a Tootsie Roll. Stores like Ann Taylor should be ashamed of themselves. I made a point years ago not to patronize businesses that play Grinch during this Halloween event. I was happy to hear several other parents conspicuously corroborating my personal opinion while trick-or-treating with their costumed children. Businesses such as Munday’s, that go over the top by making kids feel welcome, will be my breakfast and lunch restaurant of choice.
