SUMMIT, NJ - Frighteningly fun and ghoulishly grand, hundreds of 'kids of all ages' activated the full power of their imaginations, donning their one-day-each-year alter-egos for the annual Summit Police Athletic League Halloween Parade.

Superheroes, princesses, pirates, witches, cartoon characters, pop culture costumes and even a non-threateningly operative tank -- yes a tank -- were all in the procession, which made its way from 25 DeForest Avenue to the Village Green, assisted along the way by Summit Police and Fire Department personnel.

Mother Nature, dressed as herself, did her part by delivering a seasonably warm, blue-sky day for the those that marched and others that lined the sidewalks to watch the kaleidoscope of creativity pass by.
