New Halloween event offers equal parts fright and delight

On Halloween night, more than 500 children strutted their stuff from storefront to storefront for both tricks and treats during the first BOO on the BLVD. Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance, Kenmore Chamber of Commerce and Kenmore Kiwanis joined forces on what attendees said they hope will be an annual event.

In all, more than 50 residents, organizations and Boulevard businesses braved the October cold to give away thousands of pieces of candy, including the Kenmore Wrestling Club who cooked up hot cocoa at Live Music Now to keep revelers warm. At 6 p.m., the Rialto Theatre hosted the Kenmore Kiwanis Costume Contest, where the cutest, prettiest, scariest and best-all around costumes won awards along a symphony of adoring “boos” from the stage.
