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.

Ghosts, goblins and ghouls took to the streets of Westminster on Oct. 25 for city's Halloween Parade. Marching bands and community groups led the procession down Monroe Street, Pennsylvania Avenue and Main Street, but the stars of the show were in the crowd as well, with many parade watchers coming in full costume to join the spirit of the occasion. People lined Main Street and Longwell Avenue as units passed by, many handing out candy and mingling with the crowd. The evening parade, a tradition in downtown Westminster, is hosted by American Legion Post 31.
