Children had plenty of options to enjoy sweet and scary things

Children had a lot of choices to be outside and have fun over the Halloween weekend. Trick or Treat on the Trail and Spooky Tales were held at the Richfield Heritage Preserve on Oct. 30. About 500 children attended the event that was sponsored by the Richfield Joint Recreation District and Richfield Village. Many volunteers, including about 70 Revere High School students, decorated and dressed for a part.

On Oct. 31, the village sponsored a parade escorted by Richfield Police to the fire station, where treats were given out. About 300 children filled their goody bags with the sweet stuff.

Some families extended the day with door-to-door trick or treating after the parade. ∞
