Unseasonably cool temps didn’t prevent thousands of children from trick or treating last night. The neighborhood embraced the spirit of the holiday decorating their homes, sitting on their stoop (sipping alcohol-laced beverages to help ward off the chill of the evening), and doling out candy of every variety. Residents on Waltham Street once again decorated their street with cobwebs, hanging bodies and statues as well as dry ice, giant spiders and spooky costumes of every variety imaginable.
Every year a neighbor on Union Park Street demonstrates his exceptional pumpkin carving skills. This year he paid tribute to the late Steve Jobs, carving a series of Apple-themed jack-o-lanterns and lighting them beautifully.
