Photos: Costumed Kiddies (and Parents) Paraded Through Laguna Thursday

Children and families from the Laguna Beach Parents Club roamed through town for treats and also helped collect items for the Friendship Shelter.

There were brothers dressed up as Buckingham Palace guards, a baby in a sushi costume, and two parents who wore jellyfish get-ups. Decked-out families and children of the Laguna Beach Parents Club paraded through the streets of Laguna Beach on Thursday afternoon to collect trick-or-treat goodies from local merchants. They also collected products needed at the Friendship Shelter, which assists homeless adults in becoming self-sufficient.

About 200 members of the LBPC gathered at Main Beach. They placed donated body soap, shampoo, conditioner and other products in a large pile. These items will be delivered to the Friendship Shelter. Then the group lined up along the boardwalk and, with the help of Laguna Beach police officers, crossed Coast Highway. Up they went to Forest Avenue, where they were greeted by shop keepers passing out tiny treats.

The annual LBPC Halloween parade is just one of the events hosted by the club, which promotes social activities and support for parents of young children in Laguna Beach.

The Friendship Shelter houses 32 adults and provides food and shelter for residents who are working to reconstruct their lives.
