Halloween in Maplewood, New Jersey

Last week we spent a few days with Tom, Kelly, and Matthew in New Jersey and New York. We had wonderful days with everyone and the weather was beautiful.
Maplewood has an excellent tradition: a community wide Halloween party is held downtown on Halloween afternoon.

Above are Tony, Kelly, and a Baby Elephant ready to go to the party.

The Baby Elephant was very happy in his costume, surveying the scene from his comfortable stroller seat.

Adults as well as children enjoyed the festive atmosphere; here was a "gorilla carrying a caged man" costume we especially enjoyed.
