The weather may have not been the best for the annual Kiwanis Halloween parade Saturday, but that did not stop the brave ghosts and goblins from showing up for a day of fun.Unfortunately, the weather did not get much better when the time came for all those trick-or-treaters to start making their appointed candy rounds.The turnout was not as heavy as expected, so we have plenty of candy left at my house. Thank goodness the candy I bought was all the stuff I like.*Do you have eyeglasses that are out of date or out of style?

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All head honcho Tyler, the Creator has reason to celebrate: Today is May 10, better known to him and the increasingly rabid OF fanbase (e.g. Sonar had to move next Thursday's OF show to its main room) as the release date of Goblin , Tyler's XL Recordings follow-up to his first, self-released album, Bastard . On the Internet, Goblin's release is a big deal — expect thousands and thousands of words on "What It Means" in the coming weeks — and it remains to be seen if that will translate to mainstream success.

As the temperatures dip lower and the leaves turn colors, Larriland Farm is celebrating the changing season with a fall festival all this month. The Woodbine farm is decorated for Halloween and offers a Boo Barn filled with animated, not too scary ghosts and goblins and straw maze suitable for children. Visitors can also hop into wagons for traditional hayrides or pumpkin-picking rides. John Dhima, 3 (left), hefts up a hearty pumpkin from Larriland, which also offers apple-picking. Food and drink are also served, including hot dogs, hamburgers and cider.

For those who want to celebrate All Saint's Day in July, Hellboy II: The Golden Army spills over with goblins, trolls and elves like a Halloween horn of plenty. Guillermo del Toro designs this follow-up to his 2004 Hellboy as a war between the magical and fearsome creatures who roamed J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth and C.S. Lewis' Narnia and a handful of agents from the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, including the burly red demon Hellboy (Ron Perlman) and the female human torch Liz Sherman (Selma Blair)

We're looking for "high concept" Halloween costumes -- ones that are more abstract than literal. Dressing like a "Freudian slip" or as "static cling," for instance, takes a bit more imagination than going as a M&M. Think more in terms of ideas or states of mind than the usual ghosts, goblins and politicians. The most clever costumes will be considered for inclusion in an article in Modern Life. E-mail your jpeg photographs, with your name and phone number, to sun.features@baltsun.com, no later than tomorrow.

150 years ago in The SunNov. 2: Who Did It? -- On Tuesday night some persons, either for "fun" or with evil intent, built a fence across East Baltimore Street, on the rise of Laudenslager's Hill, taking for the purpose posts and rails from one of the graveyards in the vicinity.100 years ago in The SunOct. 31: It has been suggested that, in view of the near approach of Election Day and the need to fire the zeal of Republican patriots, the president will get up a new war, or a scare about the renewal of the last one.

Editor's note: An unusual book binds two children together in a suspenseful mystery. The house was dark. One candle was lit. Andrew shook as he opened the cover of a spooky book. Thunder rumbled far away as Andrew gulped a fistful of popcorn. Carefully he turned each dusty page. And this is what that spooky book said ... Once there was a girl alone in a great big house. Lightning cracked the sky, and she shook as she opened the cover of a spooky book. "Same as me," whispered Andrew. "She had no one to play with, and she found a spooky book!

So, you think you know elves. OK, spot quiz: You're out on day walking your elven army when your path is suddenly blocked by an obnoxious horde of goblins, orcs, the odd stone troll and a wagonload of snotlings. You heard me, snotlings.Do you: A) fire your repeating bolt thrower into the orcs; B) charge your Knights of the Silver Helm into the goblins; C) maneuver your company of High Elf Bowmen for a shot at the Troll; D) snap out of it because you're a serious grown-up with a very real mortgage, you're wearing wingtips for gosh sakes, and you have a walk that needs to be shoveled?

WEDNESDAY WAS the perfect night for trick-or-treating. The moon was full and bright. The sky was clear, dark and scattered with stars. The air was warm enough for little princesses and pirates to shuffle through the leaves in their costumes, unencumbered by heavy winter jackets. But most of my Halloween candy still sits in a bowl by the front door. Usually, we welcome 60 or 70 trick-or-treaters. This year, we saw fewer than 30. Standing on the sidewalk with some neighbors that evening, I thought the silence was almost eerie.

Most incorporated Carroll County towns allow trick-or-treating within town limits during certain hours Halloween night. New Windsor and Taneytown neither discourage nor condone trick-or-treating. The State Highway Administration in Westminster has safety vests that parents may borrow for tomorrow night. The bright orange reflective vests can be worn over costumes to increase visibility during trick-or-treating. The SHA shop is at 150 Wyndtryst Drive, 410-848-6565. Town regulations are: Westminster's mayor and Common Council will allow Halloween trick-or-treating from dusk to 8 p.m. tomorrow for children ages 12 and younger who are accompanied by parents or adult guardians.

Will the Powerpuff girls or Austin Powers appear at your door Tuesday? The answer is held in a nondescript building in Ellicott City. There -- absent the cobwebs and goblins -- is the Halloween Association, a national organization that does everything from tracking costume trends to collecting data on trick-or-treat candy. "We focus on promoting and expanding the celebration of Halloween," said Mary Helen Sprecher, director of marketing. "We are the go-to organization when it comes to Halloween."

LET'S CALL this one Halloween: An Appreciation. OK, the candy's a problem but the holiday itself offers something wholesome, challenging and dramatically under-appreciated. In a world where adults sleep online to pay $300 for something called PlayStation 2, I submit this brief on behalf of a holiday game that comes free (or could with a patient trip to Goodwill). This game -- Halloween, in a word -- comes with far more power than the aforementioned cyber come-on. It institutionalizes and lengthens childhood, something every parent yearns to do. It takes the game of dress-up on the road.
