Following this year’s hauntingly successful 33rd annual Throggs Neck Halloween Parade, costumed characters of all ages competed for top prizes in the annual Throggs Neck Halloween Costume Contest on Saturday, October 29. Assemblyman Michael Benedetto and several judges deliberated on the top three Halloween costumes across four categories.

Edward Scissorhands was ‘a cut above’ the competition earning him second place in the zero to four-years-old category.
