RED BANK, NJ: The pandemic made Red Bank’s 73rd Halloween parade on Sunday a little more frightful and a little less delightful.

Except if you were a kid.

It was a cool and crisp October day that kicked off the parade at 2:00pm with kids, parents and friends dressed in an array of very clever costumes beginning at Irving and Arthur Places.

Led by a group of antique cars that kept the participants spaced apart, there were fire engines screaming their sirens to the delight of the children.

Walking downtown on Broad Street to Wallace Street, they finished at the Eastside lots.

“Hopefully the families enjoyed themselves.  I want to thank the Red Bank Fire Department, Police Department and the antique car folks," said Charlie Hoffmann, Parks and Recreation Director.

Be sure to look at the carousel of pictures of some ingenious and creative costumes.
