Zombies, princesses, witches and even some dressed-up dogs took over East Point Douglas Road Saturday morning for the sixth-annual Monster Bash parade, an event of the Cottage Grove Strawberry Fest Committee.

The brisk morning weather didn’t deter kids in costumes and bundled-up families from lining the road from the District 833 Service Center to the District Program Center to take in the Halloween event.
