A fun time was had by all at the Mother Goose Halloween Parade at the Saugus Iron Works on October 27. Children ages one through five, dressed in their Halloween outfits, danced and sang and went trick or treating on a parade route around the Iron Works House, with candy being given out by Park Rangers Paul Kenworthy and Mike Parr, Saugus Public Library Director Alan Thibeault and Saugus Public Library Head of Children’s Services Amy Melton.
The weather was beautiful for the event and several families stayed to see the ducks on the river, enjoy the fall foliage and take some family photos. Lollipops were especially popular with parents and toddlers alike – “So much less messy than chocolate,” several parents said.
The event was organized by the Saugus Public Library, with activities led by Amy Melton dressed as a very friendly witch.
