Hundreds of costumed children, their families and friends showed up on Monday for an evening of fun during Sen. Jennifer L.

The festival returned after a two-year pandemic hiatus, and at least 2,000 children and adults were expected during the free event, the senator said in a news release.
Among the celebrants were Jacari Birchett, 4 months, dressed as a little Gizmo.
Santa and Nutzy also were on hand at the festival, as well as members of the rest of the Birchett family of Richmond. In addition to candy, participants helped themselves to pizza, ice cream, and free home COVID-19 tests.
