BRISTOL - City Hall celebrated Halloween with a visit from more than 150 young trick-or-treaters.
“Youngsters from local home daycare centers, along with school age kids from the Bristol Boys & Girls Club, descended upon City Hall and roamed its haunted floors,” according to a statement from Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu’s office.
Many City Hall departments also decorated their offices for the holiday.
“At the end of the day, as the mischief and mayhem subsided, the votes were tallied and the winner of the City Hall Halloween Decoration Challenge was announced. The winner with over 330 votes was the Assessor’s Office, for their ‘Nightmare on Christmas’ themed entry. The Department of Public Works came in (second) with 235 votes,” the statement read.
“This was fun,” said Lindsey Rivers of the Public Works Department, who organized the event.
“To see the creativity of our co-workers and the joyful screeching of princesses, policemen, cats, Batmen, ghouls and goblins, as they filled their goodie bags, was a great way to engage with the youngest of our community and have a fun competition between the City Hall departments,” Rivers said.
