From spooks to Spiderman to fairy princesses, Halloween brought children from Penobscot and Castine to schools and village streets for a day and evening of laughs, scares and sweets. Penobscot Community School and Adams School kids paraded down streets in all their costumed glory. In late afternoon and evening, parties at the Penobscot school, Castine town hall and Witherle Library, a haunted house courtesy of the Wilson Museum and Maine Maritime Academy students, and hay rides to Castine houses for special tricks and treats rounded out the fun. Here, Children of all ages don their costumes for the annual school Halloween parade through Castine.
