Get there early — it takes a bit of time. Bring proof of identity (driver’s license, learner’s permit, Social Security card) and proof of residence in Westport (lease, paycheck, bank statement, property tax bill, naturalization documents, college registration, passport, utility bill, etc.).

There may be no (or not much of) Halloween this year.

But the time and energy that used to go into costumes has in many cases been turned to making lawns, yards and porches look spooky.

Yesterday was the deadline to register for Westport’s Parks & Recreation Department House Decoration Contest.

All around town you’ll see scenes like this. Whitney D’Angelo’s 10-year-old son Michael designed this, and many other scenes at their Westfair Drive home.

Good luck, Michael — and everyone else who entered the contest! Winners will be announced soon.

Russ Mitchell, co-CEO of Mitchells, will be run his 4th New York City marathon this Sunday — well, his own COVID-friendly version, anyway.

Russ will run from Westport to Darien. He’ll raise funds for Shatterproof, a national nonprofit aimed at reversing America’s addiction crisis.

Russ — a Shatterproof board member — has raised nearly $60,000 over the past 4 years. Click here for his fundraising page.
