Last Friday the Maritime Aquarium hosted its annual Halloween Hoot. This annual celebration offers free general admission between to anyone of any age as long as they are in costume. There was trick-or-treating in the Aquarium galleries, as well as the always-competitive costume contest, with prizes in three age groups.
Jack Gionfriddo of Norwalk was one of the costume-contest winners. Jack's jack-in-the-box was voted "Most Original Costume" in the 4-years-and-younger age group. Anna Herbig's Nemo costume won as "Funniest."
For cleverly being on both sides of the law, the Charamut family of Norwalk was also one of the costume-contest winners. They won a prize for "Most Original" costumes. Parents Bruce and Susan were inmates and sons Nicholas and Joey were police officers.
