Astronauts, doctors, firemen, mad scientists, princesses and witches went door-knocking in Oakenshawe on Sunday. They looked awfully young for their chosen professions, but just the right age to be trick-or-treating. Dozens of children and their parents joined Oakenshawe's annual Halloween parade, while Remington scared up a good crowd for its new Hauntingdon event in the 2900 block of Huntingdon Avenue. The two events were among many in north Baltimore last weekend, including a Halloween Haunted Adventure at the Roosevelt Recreation Center in Hampden and merchant-sponsored trick-or-treating and a costume contest on The Avenue in Hampden.

A HALLOWEEN PARADE 14 years ago convinced me that I wanted to live in Crofton. A friend had invited me and my toddlers to visit for the day and to watch the parade with her family.The sun gleamed from a clear blue sky through trees of orange and yellow leaves. The children were all dressed in their Halloween finery, and the parents were just beaming their love. I decided that this was the kind of community I wanted for my family.So we moved to Crofton, and we've enjoyed the parade every year since.

The gigantic fish, as translucent and whispery as a dream, wears an aquamarine mantle of scales on its tracing-paper skin. Temporarily speared on a bamboo pole, it waits for the person who will lift it high enough to glide through the currents of light above the wide green sea of Patterson Park. This sculpture is part of the graceful and glowing company of illuminations that will mark the Sixth Annual Halloween Lantern Parade, a community-created art spectacle in southeast Baltimore. As many as 1,000 people are expected to bring homemade lanterns to the park at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 to partake in this annual performance of art and movement -- an artistic collaboration between parade director Molly Ross and neighborhood residents.

But NYC & Co., the city's conventions and visitors bureau, wants even more. Apparently the organization thinks the title "greatest city in the world" is not enough to tempt everybody, so it came up with a list of alternative superlatives to attract golf history buffs, Victorian greenhouse admirers and demonic parade fans.
