DAY OF THE DEAD ROUND-UP

Happy El Día de los Muertos! We were disheartened to see that vandals had smashed the DLB’s jack o’lantern overnight. Didn’t you watch Trick ‘R Treat?

Anyway, biking downtown this morning, it was evident that similar hooligans had been at work throughout the downtown core. Halloween displays also became increasingly creative the further south we biked:

On a more pleasant note, survivors of last night’s pumpkin pogrom were being lined in Vermont Square Park in The Annex as local residents brought their jack o’lanterns for the first annual event:

Tonight (Nov. 1), another pumpkin parade will take place in Sorauren Park. It’s an annual event which apparently attracts up to 2,000 pumpkin pulling-residents. Go to http://www.soraurenpark.com/ for more information.
