Maskeraid

Our town featured its [recently] annual Maskeraid on the weekend.

Maskeraid: as in mask, as in masquerade, as in parade, as in aid for the foodbank.

A zombie wandered off and banged his head on the tree next to me.

A worried looking pirate. Had the Royal Navy been sighted?

Boody guy on a float.

Goulish gal next to bloody guy.
There were some happy maskeraiders.

And some pretty and sweet ones too.

Spooky for a good cause!

Brilliant masks. Over here in Norway there isn't much happening at Halloween, although more and more shops and then of course more and more children do get into it. To be on the safe side I did get some sweets in this year.

It all looks like fun, and those are marvellous costumes and make up, but I don`t think my grandchildren would like it at all. They would be screaming very loudly I think. I might join in with the screaming too.....

As I say every year at this time, for St least a month, I hate Hallowe'en.

What a scarily awesome way to raise awareness/aid for a good cause. Great photos.

Looks like everyone had a great time and the costumes and makeup were outstanding. These are way better than when I was much younger and the costumes were hobos, scarecrows or witches.
