Halloween in the Central West End
is a pretty big deal. Family-friendly events kick off at 11 a.m. today with the kids' costume parade at the intersection of Maryland and Euclid avenues. Trick-or-treating begins at noon, with children filling their bags with goodies from local businesses. There won't be any hellhounds at the canine costume parade, but there will be lots of cute dogs and puppies dressed up for the holiday. Things go bump in the night from 8 to 11 p.m. as legions of elaborately dressed superheroes, zombies, werewolves and vampires throw an exuberant street party that could wake the dead. This wicked night of merrymaking is highlighted by the best adult costume contest in the city, and it also includes dancing, live entertainment and more than just a little drinking.
