WESTPORT — Despite inclement weather town hall was packed with residents costumed as heroes, ghouls, ghosts and goblins in celebration of the annual Halloween parade on Tuesday.

The popular event drew scores of young costumed trick-or-treaters, with some parents arriving in costumes themselves. As families roamed town hall in search of chocolates, sweets and other goodies, they were met by costumed town employees from all departments. Several candidates for this year’s election were also in attendance to greet families.
