Stores throughout the downtown stretch of Gillette Avenue handed out candy to eager trick-or-treaters from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday for the 2020 Boo Fest. 


Teegan Jahner, 10, is all smiles after winning their age division for the best costume contest along Gillette Avenue during Boo-Fest on Halloween Saturday.

Dozens of little trick-or-treaters and their families marched up and down Gillette Avenue visiting downtown shops, which handed out goodies to throngs of costumed kiddos and even a few parents who dressed up. Lines to get into some area businesses, including Gone Postal Pizzeria, stretched almost an entire block length four people wide.
