Wizards and Witches take over the Hudson River walkway

Professor Magonigal, Luna Lovegood and Harry Potter
On most Saturday mornings the Hudson River Walkway is dotted with Runners and walkers out for some exercise. But this past Saturday the river walk made way for witches, wizards, ninjas and a host of other costumed kids and their parents. They came out for the Spooky Stroll a 3k Halloween themed walk to raise awareness and provide assistance to the Edgewater Community Food Pantry.
Jennifer Barry commented that
At pre-registration the Stroll had over 100 participants and had raised around five hundred dollars and collected canned food items to help stock the pantry for the winter.

This is the second year for the spooky stroll which is organized by Ms. Barry and Nancy Pollack both are teachers in the Edgewater School District. Last year, after the Avalon fire, the food pantry and The Holy Rosary Church were there to provide assistance to those displaced by the incident.

The Stroll starts and ends at City Place. Kids get a chance to preview their costumes, hang out with friends and pickup some early Halloween treats from tables setup along the route. At the last stop walkers receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win prizes from sponsors including: Fleming's, Bareburger, Staples, The River Palm Terrace, Fitness Factory and McDonald’s.

Prior to the raffle Ms. Barry addressed the audience with a reading of an excerpt from Winnie the Pooh ending with a poignant  quote "A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey inside". She thanked the crowd for "filling their pot with honey".
