The streets of downtown Riverhead were alive with the undead as costumed ghouls — as well as those in less scary getups — traveled down Main Street for the annual Halloween parade on Saturday.

It was part of Riverhead’s annual Halloween Fest, which also featured trick-or-treating on Main Street, decorated lamp posts and the town’s first “coffin races.”

See our photos from the event.
