While Hurricane Sandy slammed Halloween 2012, it hasn't taken all the fun out of Halloween.
The Port Chester Recreation Department today has a party for local children to help celebrate Halloween, set for 5:30 p.m. at the Port Chester Senior Center, 222 Grace Church St.
The village orginally planned to have its Halloween in the Park party on Monday at Lyon Park, but that was scrapped because of the hurricane. While there won't be an outdoor park component, kids will still have a chance to show off their costumes at today's party.
Heather Krakowski of the Recreation Department says the party is free and open to children of all ages. There will be free tattoos, a costume parade, a costume contest and a candy giveaway.

Because of damage from Hurricane Sandy and widespread power outages, Port Chester police had recommended that parents not let their children go out for traditional trick-or-treat activities on Halloween. Many communities throughout Westchester are looking at alternatives - such as today's party in Port Chester - so that children can still show off their costumes and have some fun.
