An Avalon School survey revealed Wednesday lower school students preferred Spiderman as their choice for Halloween costumes this year.
4th grade student Marcos deRibeaux chose Spiderman because he is a fan of the character.
“I chose Spiderman because he’s my favorite superhero,” deRibeaux said.
Still, other students chose the Marvel Comic web-slinger out of necessity.
“When I looked for a costume that was all they had so I bought it,” said fifth grader John Kolf.
In general, students gravitated towards superheros, even the ones who didn’t choose Spiderman.
“I love Mikey… I wish I was him in real life,” said Alec Hawley, a fifth grader who went as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
However, not everyone chose to dress up in their best Halloween outfit. A number of students chose to trick or treat in regular clothes.
