Costumes, Drill Teams and The Joker

Halloween is a big deal in my town, so big that we have a lot of events. Halloween decorating contests, we have a Ghost Walk, a parade, and a street shuts down just for that one night. Our local schools even have big Halloween events as fundraisers.

Our daughter is a Junior Girl Scout, she’s dressed up as Rumpleteazer from the musical Cats. My husband who sews, made the costume, wig, tail and did her makeup. She and her troop walked in the parade, threw candy to people along the route and had a good time. I got to walk and sit in the back on the pick up truck in front of us from the Daisy Troop in front of us. My husband’s costume was The Joker that he created from items he had already.

That’s our friend and my husband who dressed as The Joker. HalloweenParade_DeirdreRyanCommercialEditorialPhotography HalloweenParade_DeirdreRyanCommercialEditorialPhotography HalloweenParade_DeirdreRyanCommercialEditorialPhotography HalloweenParade_DeirdreRyanCommercialEditorialPhotography

Just a little ways in front of us was the Camden Sophisticated Sisters Drill Team, and not too far behind us was   The Baltimore Westsiders Marching Band.

Along the parade route both teams stop and perform their routines, and then at the very end there’s a contest. HalloweenParade_DeirdreRyanCommercialEditorialPhotography
