Halloween in a College Town

Saturday, October 31st, after neighborhood Trick-or-Treating was over, our neighbors came over for a cocktail and then we decided to walk down to Campustown to see the Halloween excitement.

We walked through Campus and across the Quad on a beautiful, crisp fall evening. As we passed the Alma Mater statue and approached Campustown, we saw a huge group of students waiting for the lights to change. Once the Walk sign went on, the group charged across the intersection and we raced after them to see what was going on.

What it was was a long parade of Zombies. We followed them down the street.

After a few blocks, they stopped and laid down on the sidewalk. Then Michael Jackson's Thriller began to play on some far away boom box. Here's my iPhone video below. You can't really hear the music, but you'll get the gist.

We had dinner at a nearby Indian restaurant and headed home. Here's how I spent Sunday afternoon:


Happy November!
