His mother Sarah Macintosh wanted him to wear a pumpkin suit his grandma made for him.

"I was going to stuff it and have it sewn, and it was going to be all big but he wouldn't do it," Macintosh said. "It was the tights. I guess he's already got opinions."

The youngest attendee may have been Bryce Walaska, who came in a skeleton clad outfit and is seven weeks old.

Library staff headed by Perla Flores and about a dozen volunteers put the event together.

"I just close my eyes and let her go, cause she's so good at it," she said.
