Bill de Blasio had a very happy Halloween.

The mayoral front-runner returned home last night for Park Slope’s annual Halloween parade, the undisputed star of the evening. Children, recognizing him from television, rushed from the sidelines to be near him. Euphoric cheers greeted him at almost every stop along the procession, which snaked down 7th Avenue to 3rd Street.

Almost everyone wanted a picture, a video, a hand shake, a hug. One common refrain from the crowd was, “Wow, is he really that tall?” Another, just as ubiquitous in its various forms, was, “That’s the next mayor of New York City.”

Mr. de Blasio, who represented the neighborhood for eight years on the City Council, met a few interesting characters during the parade, too. Click on the image above to start the slideshow.
