The ghosts and goblins – and, superheroes, princesses, ninjas, witches and wizards — of the ABC Streets gathered on Sunday, October 26th for an afternoon of parading and merriment. The festivities started at David and Irene Burnette’s house for the Harvard Street Halloween parade. Then everyone moved onto Barb Kraus’s spooktacular graveyard for family photos. All of the heroes and villains then made their way over to the Hasman Haunted House, to warm their bellies on a feast of donuts and warm mulled cider (cold cider was also available for the non-adventurous types). Go HERE for a gallery of photos of the event.
Ghouls and goblins swooped in Saturday last to Castle Alexander for their annual parade through the town. The leaves were swirling and the winds carried the witches, fairies, dragons, princesses, super heroes and their guardians down the cobbled street toward the foggy Kraus family cemetery where their images were captured for all eternity. The howling hound called them to Herr Hasman’s cozy Inn for a feast of mulled cider, mummified remains, newt’s eyes, and sweet black spiders. View their images, if you dare……. . Photos HERE
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. . .
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.
Thanks to everyone who made our first ABC St. Children’s Halloween Parade a huge success. We had about 30 kids come out along with their parents, grandparents, and friends. The kids walked along Harvard St. in their costumes and the parade ended with cider and donuts for all in attendance. I’m happy to say that this is now going to be an annual event. I hope everyone enjoys the pictures taken by board member Dave Burnet.
