Pumpkin Palooza

Friday night we went to the Pumpkin Palooza. It's a city Halloween party that they have every year here. They block off a section of main street and have all kinds of fun. Kids can get all dressed up and go trick or treating to all the businesses on the street. You can buy a pumpkin and decorate it with all kinds of fun things. It's just a really fun evening for everyone.

We scrounged around and came up with a costume for Erik. He wasn't too inpressed with it all but everyone thought he was pretty cute.
One fun thing was the manequins in all the shop windows. Don't they look so life-like?These girls are from the fashion department at the University here. They were in all the clothes stores and it was really fun to see. They did an awesome job looking like manequins. In fact, there was one store that had some of the models in it and some actual manequins and it was really hard to tell the difference. We had a really good time just wandering around watching the crowd and seeing what all the little shops had to offer......Erik did get a little tired of the whole thing though and decided to call it quits.
