FRAMINGHAM – City of Framingham Mayor Charlie Sisitsky and First Lady Robin Kaye hosted their first “spooktacular trick or treating” event at the Memorial Building on Tuesday afternoon, October 18.

The theme for the Mayor’s office was It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, with the Mayor dressed up as Charlie brown, and First Lady Kaye dressed up as Sally. City of Framingham Public Information Officer Ryan Egan was Linus, complete with blanket. Snoopy was there, too for all to take a photo with.

“I have not seen that many smiling faces in a long time,” said Kaye. ‘The atmosphere at City Hall was amazing.”

The City Councilors ghosted the celebration, sort of.

The City Council office was filled with ghosts, designed by City Council administrators Kathy Carey and Marion Kelly.

The duo created a ghost figure of each Councilor and put the 11 ghosts in the Blumer room with a light display.

“This was a great event. Hats off to the Mayor and each department that went all out for the kids,” said Councilor Janet Leombruno.

City of Framingham Chief Financial Officer Louis Miller and her staff went with a “Hocus Pocus” theme.

There were a lot of witches in the Clerk’s office as their theme this year was the “Clerk’s Apothecary.”

The City Treasurer’s office went with a Monopoly theme, in which Councilor Leombruno found herself temporarily in jail.

“I love how each department tried to one up the other,” said Councilor Leombruno. “Next year, hey will even step up their game more, not that you really could.”

The library bookmobile was parked at the event with a giant spider web on it.

There was music, and of course lots of treats!

“Not sure who had more fun, the kids or the grown-ups,” said Councilor Leombruno.
