Halloween in Sierra Madre is a pretty big deal! I've lived here for 7 years and never quite realized the "event" it's become and probably always has been. My kids nor I have ever appreciated the extent of activities our town has to offer until now...it's never too late:) Our first Halloween at the shop...what an experience! The week began with the painting of our front window for a window contest, lots of business' participated...my daughter and her best friends created our window! The week ended with a Friday afternoon of trick or treating and a parade. Gloria had a marvelous idea of making a haunted house on the side of the shop...the concept was great but didn't turn out quite as we expected...actually, it was somewhat chaotic... so busy, we didn't have time to take photos (ugh!) Hundreds of kids come through trick or treating, they had a blast! It was really cool to see such a community atmosphere and everyone just having plain ole FUN. We'll be ready for the crowds next year!
