Seeing a ghost at the Gibbons Middle School on Friday night was nothing to be afraid about.
It was there playing games, laughing at a clown and having refreshments.
The Westborough Recreation Department's 35th annual Halloween Spooktacular Children's Halloween Costume Party for Kindergarten to grade four featured no tense moments.
The festivities drew plenty of characters, including a box of popcorn; Mario from Mario Bros.; a number of ninjas; and enough super-heroes to support a team-up of the Avengers and the Justice League of America.
