Halloween Parade around The Point

   POINT RICHMOND, Calif. - The downtown business triangle was awash in ghosts, goblins and all manner of costumed children (with some adults, too) in the annual Halloween Parade Wednesday morning with students from Washington Elementary School scurrying all around The Point.
     Local photographer Spencer Allen documented some of the goings on as well as paying a visit to several of the fairy villages along Washington Street.
     His photos from today are below.
