The Harris family — Kelly, Terry, 1-year-old Hunter and family dogs Lily the pit bull, as a bee, and Tuffe the chocolate Pomeranian as a honey-loving bear, arrive at Monsters on MainStreet in Downtown DeLand Oct. 31. Theirs were among the most elaborate family-themed costumes among thousands who thronged the Boulevard.
