Ghosts, goblins, pirates and all sorts of other characters made the rounds of Cape Ann’s neighborhoods and streets during the annual trick-or-treat celebrations of Halloween Thursday night.
But a number of those little goblins picked up more than a few treats at Gloucester City Hall, where the City Council hosted a kids’ Halloween party, with candy, music and much more — sponsored by Kids Unlimited and the Adventures of Scuba Jack.
City Hall’s Kyrouz Auditorium was decked out for the occasion, and the event featured games, prizes, a dance contest, free photos, goodie bags and more.
But the entertainment didn’t stop there. The city councilors livened up the scene by donning costumes themselves — topped by Ward 3 Councilor Steve LeBlanc’s dressing as Mayor Carolyn Kirk.
In case you’re wondering, yes, LeBlanc is up for re-election Tuesday — but he’s running unopposed.
