Children showed off their best Halloween costumes for the 27th Annual Fall Festival and Parade in downtown Sylvania on Sunday.

At the festival, representatives of the Downtown Sylvania Association judged young attendees for the best trick-or-treat outfits. Afterward, the children were invited to participate in the parade.

The parade included twirling groups, the Northview and Southview high school bands, Mayor Craig Stough along with the city’s sister city Woodstock, Ont. Mayor Pat Sobeski, and participants. The parade marched from Northview to Veterans Memorial Park.

Hundreds of spectators lined the street to catch a glimpse of the procession presented by the Sylvania Area Sister Cities Commission, which is comprised of city and Sylvania Township officials.

Festival-goers were treated along downtown Sylvania streets to a pumpkin giveaway, activities for children, as well as perusing art work crafted by the Toledo Craftsmans Guild. Local vendors and the Boys Scouts also served carnival food, from hot dogs to funnel cakes.
