Saturday night, 40,000 people graced Franklin Street with their presence and, more importantly, their costumes. 

The street, which was closed to traffic at 8:30 p.m., closed an hour earlier than the year before in an attempt to make the event more family friendly. 

The early results seem to support the plan; there were no arrests on Franklin Street this year after more than a dozen people were arrested or cited at 2014’s Homegrown Halloween. 

“I don’t like all the crowds, but it’s fun to watch,” said 12-year-old Feliciano Carranza, who was dressed up as a wolf.
