Police officers, princesses, monsters and even Sonic the Hedgehog took over the boardwalk on a sunny Sunday, October 22 for the NYPD 100th Precinct’s first Children’s Halloween Parade, which culminated in their annual Trunk-or-Treat in front of the precinct.

Dozens of costumed kids, parents and even pups lined up behind the 100th Precinct’s Neighborhood Coordination Officer vehicles, which played festive music along the parade route from Beach 102nd to the precinct. After the parade, everyone met up next to the 100th Precinct where several vehicles were festively decked out and volunteers were ready to dish out Halloween treats. The event included DJ music, cotton candy, snacks and more.

The event culminated with the announcement of the winners of the costume contest. Among the young winners, taking home gift certificates for Mara’s Ice Cream were a group of ‘70s hippies, Police Officer Joseph, and a fabulous Ursula who nailed every detail of the look. The 100th Precinct’s Domestic Violence Unit also had Ring cameras to give away to some adults who dressed for the occasion. New Captain Carol Hamilton was given the tough job of picking the adult winners. She selected a crazy scientist/ Einstein costume and a hilarious old housewife. Councilwoman Joann Ariola and Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato were on hand to congratulate all winners.
