This little monster, Nevaeh Hertlein, 5 of Coupeville, was excited to hunt for candy as she walked down Front Street with her family during the Torchlight Parade.

 

 

 

Police Officer Nicolas D'Haene, 4, and vampire Asia James, 11, both of Coupeville pause in their stroll down Front Street during the annual Torchlight Parade on Saturday.

 

One of the smallest participants in the Torchlight Parade on Saturday, Callen Huff, carried by his dad, won over the judges and won Best Boy's Costume for being a gnome.

 

This little bride, Skylar Parker, 6, won't let rain ruin her wedding day. She knows it is good luck! The poor weather on Saturday reduced attendance at the annual Torchlight Parade in Coupeville, which can have over 400 participants, to about 150 people. However, Parker and other participants still had smiles on their faces.
