SOUTHBRIDGE – The senior centers of Charlton, Sturbridge and Southbridge came together for a Halloween event at the Casaubon Senior Center in Southbridge Wednesday, Oct. 31. The Halloween Harvest Festival was put on by the S.A.L.T. Council, which is a group of senior citizens and police officers from the tri-community area of Charlton, Sturbridge and Southbridge.
Costumes were optional at this event, but most of the attendees showed up in costume. They didn’t disappoint either; they made the most of the celebration with inventive and elaborate costumes. Some who dressed up as zombies or other Halloween classics stayed in character for a parade around the gymnasium where the event was held. Maggie the Clown provided entertainment. Representative Peter Durant stopped by to enjoy the fun as well.
