Calling all little ghouls and goblins! Haverhill charity Ozzie’s Kids invites city youth to celebrate Halloween at their annual fundraiser and costume party on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Kicking off at 10:30 a.m. at the Haverhill Lodge of the Elks (24 Summer St.), the holiday festivities will continue at 12 p.m. with a parade and costume party. The day will also include food, raffles, games, crafts and much more.

Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob and The Ghostbusters are expected to make an appearance.

Entry into the costume parade is $3 per child and prizes will be awarded for the top costumes.

All funds raised on Saturday will go to the organization’s Christmas initiative, started nearly 30 years ago by retired Haverhill police officer Osmond “Ozzie” Hardy in an effort to give toys and gifts to needy children in the community.
