Little ghouls and goblins marched down Park Avenue on Saturday in the annual Amherst Halloween parade, stopping at the end of the trip for donuts and apple cider on the city hall lawn. Among the best costumes we found were an entire family dressed as characters from “The Wizard of Oz,” another as Joy, Anger, Sadness, Fear, and Disgust from “Inside Out,” and an infant in Darth Vader helmet with Mom and Dad as stormtroopers. Conspicuously missing this year were the Amherst Marching Comets, which traveled to Columbus to perform for judges at the state finals.
