The Lamont Street Halloween Festival was well attended this year, but not quite at the levels of the last two or three years. The rain and a Saturday holiday kept those away who on a weekday may have seen this as the "main event." Many came early and there was still a decent crowd into the night. A puppet-shadowbox show with live music accompaniment was awesome. Both players and the audience of young and old paid no attention to the smattering of drizzle. Good time had by all.
About halfway through the night a gaggle of zombie walkers came through; a yearly tradition at this point. This year they departed from the usual moaning and groaning to perform a choreographed piece, to Micheal Jackson's Thriller, natürlich. You may have to use your imagination on the video; the sounds of Thriller wane in and out as the only speaker provided was from a small boombox being carried around. I think you know the words.
This is one of the funnest yearly events in the neighborhood and here's to next year. Cheers.
