Marlborough – Throngs of costumed kids received treats Oct. 24 from downtown Marlborough businesses, city agencies and nonprofit organizations before viewing or joining the Horribles Parade along Main Street. Leading the parade was the Whitcomb Middle School Marching Band under the direction of Jonathan Rosenthal, music coordinator of Marlborough public schools, good-naturedly costumed as Spiderman.
Among those giving away goodies at City Hall were Mayor Arthur Vigeant with elected officials and staff, School Committee members and political candidates. Meanwhile, scarecrow contest entries were displayed for viewing on the fence at Union Common. The annual event is sponsored by the mayor’s office.
