Halloween is the best. The horror and gore version of Halloween, not so much for me, but the masquerade, the costumery, the spectacle.

The fun. That’s Halloween.

Our local theater town throws a parade each year on Halloween afternoon, Main St. closed to traffic, while the Children’s Parade takes place.

There are children, of course... some.

Queen of Hearts with The Hulk
Some storm troopers are social…
Day of the Dead women in the crowd
The people behind are almost as interesting, I thought/cute Little Red Riding Hood!
The Wild Thing looks tired ~ Dad is a shark?
This one makes me smile every time I look at it/happy dreadies
Happy Batman
This couple intrigued, but I’m not sure what/who they are for Halloween
A mime couple…

“Mom, I can only see feet”
Happy gnome lady

Great pics, great costumes.  R&L ;-)

Such fun! I liked all of them, but my favorite pic is hands down the one of the three little girls, the one in the middle holding a big green bag. SO adorable!

More than 200K Halloween tourists visited my town yesterday, even more expected Monday. It's crazy here!  Yours looks much more sane (and fun). Are you in any of the pictures? I like the masking tape skeleton–just pull off the tape and next year you can be something else!

My costume tomorrow is subtle, am wearing black, and my drag queen friend's turquoise wig. Happy Halloween everyone!

Anna, these are great !  I'm coming back to look again, and sharing them with my Anna in the morning.  She will LOVE them!  Poor baby, Halloween is her favorite holiday of the year, and she doesn't feel good.  These will make her feel better.

Terry, Dharma, Jmac, thank you! It's a fun spot to take a bunch of photos, people get creative on their costumes here, rarely see commercial ones -- love to see the alter egos and masquerades.

Rosi, it really is my most favorite, I think, great expressions! Kids grow up confident here, it seems. It just gets too small for the young adults, small towns, and they all seem to fly away to cities for awhile... while I can't imagine living anywhere else, at this point.

greenie, I bet over your way is packed with all kinds! I spent one Halloween in your town, long ago, but still remember how fun and crazy it was. It gets nuts here, too, with less people, but folks come in from all over for the parade and later tricks and treats and bars and clogging up downtown : )
I really am planning a fire in the fireplace and a good book, this year. Hope you have a great time ~ Happy Halloween!

Thanks for the smile, Z, loved reading your comment : )

You, too, Julie! Hope Anna feels better! (I've been sneezing all day and stating out loud "I never get sick" multiple times. Scare away any germs, you know ; ) )

Thanks, kosh! Photography is fun for me, so are costumes. I like living near a bunch of theater folks, come Halloween time ~

I will add the mime couple was very cool addition, dancing along, weaving in and out, the guy never took his gaze away from his partner.... lovely to watch them : )
