Local athletes, celebrities, and their families got decked out for Halloween

Yes, we included a photo of adorable Griffin Holt.

The fun for Red Sox utility man Brock Holt’s 2-year-old son, Griffin, didn’t stop on Wednesday at the team’s World Series victory parade.

Griffin extended the merriment into the evening with an adorable Halloween costume that his dad shared on his Instagram story. Dressed as an orange Tyrannosaurus Rex complete with a headpiece and shoe covers, the toddler was caught shuffling on the pavement prior to trick-or-treating.

Griffin wasn’t the only one to get into the holiday spirit. Celtics forward Jayson Tatum and his 10-month-old son, Jayson Jr., matched as characters from the animated movie series “The Incredibles.”

Former Celtics Brian Scalabrine and Cedric Maxwell, dressed as Simba and Scar from the “The Lion King,” got their groove on leading 150 elderly adults through a Halloween-themed exercise class at the Roxbury Tenants of Harvard Community Center.

Fellow Celtic Gordon Hayward was supposed to be the Beast from “Beauty and the Beast” as a counterpart to his daughter Bernie, who originally wanted to be Belle. But, according to an Instagram post from Hayward’s wife, Robyn Hayward, Bernie changed her costume to be a “unicorn princess.” The couple’s younger daughter, Charlie, was Minnie Mouse.


For a party at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday, several Patriots also opted for Disney-themed costumes. More than 40 children with cancer were invited to paint pumpkins and trick or treat with center David Andrews (Winnie the Pooh), safety Devin McCourty (Tigger), cornerback Jason McCourty (Genie from “Aladdin”), and other players.
