Hundreds of ghosts, goblins, princesses, pirates and even elected officials and candidates of Halloweens past and present last Sunday haunted Myrtle Avenue as the Kiwanis Club of Glendale celebrated its 41st annual Halloween Parade.
Newly elected Glendale Kiwanis President Bill Maher presided over the festivities as families and friends from surrounding communities such as Ridgewood, Bushwick, Maspeth and Middle Village joined neighborhood residents as they marched up Myrtle from 64th Lane to 68th Street.
Former state Sen. Serphin Maltese greeted revelers along with his successor, Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach), and GOP state Senate candidate Anthony Como and Assemblyman Mike Miller (D-Woodhaven).
Prizes were awarded at the event, established in 1970, for the top creative costumes.
