(Albertson, NY October 31) – The Town Of North Hempstead’s annual Spooky Week event drew more than 10,000 people to Clark Botanic Garden in Albertson Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman announced today. "Despite intermittent rain, more than 10,000 people enjoyed our celebration of Halloween during Spooky Week" Supervisor Kaiman said. "The event is a fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween, and participation continues to grow each year. I particularly want to thank all of the Town employees who volunteered to dress up in costumes and whose presence made the event so enjoyable."
Spooky Week was held on October 25-27, and the Town’s Not-So-Spooky Walk for younger children was held on October 28.
