Marlborough – Costume wearing children from the Marlborough area filled the city’s Main St. Oct. 25 for this year’s “Horribles Parade” and scarecrow contest. Local businesses met them offering candy up and down the street.
“This annual event brings families into downtown Marlborough and gives children the chance to showcase their amazing costumes and trick or treat in a fun and safe environment,” said Mayor Arthur Vigeant in a press release.
In addition to the trick or treating, the event concluded with the Marlborough Middle School marching band performing as they walked the length of the Main St. It also took place alongside the city’s third annual “You’ve Got the Right Stuff” scarecrow contest, which featured community-made scarecrows posted on the fencing around Union Common.
