Halloween Display at 1110 Park Ave.

From Peter Sribner at 1110 Park Ave.

It looks like the weather will be stable enough tonight (Wednesday) to allow us to set out our annual Halloween display at 1110 Park Avenue. Set up one night only, the display includes moving lights, spooky sounds and a dozen inflatable ‘monsters’. If you are out and about the eastern Park Avenue area (east of Culver, across the street from Girard Street), check it out tonight! Oh, and yes there will be plenty of candy. . .

Halloween Party

As with last year we had planned to march with costumes down a length of Harvard street culminating at Tom and Linda Hasman’s home.  The weather however did not cooperate so we all met at Tom and Linda’s skipping the parade.   A great time was had by all.

For the full set go HERE.
