The parade attracted big crowds as usual, as people were able to enjoy unseasonably warm temperatures for one of many Halloween traditions celebrated in Anoka.

The half-hour parade featured ghosts, goblins and plenty of fun for big crowds that crammed in between First and Fifth avenues in downtown Anoka. It was followed by a community bonfire as well as the first-ever Anoka High School all class reunion.
