Hundreds thronged Mackle Park Saturday afternoon for the annual Halloween Spooktacular. A quick look around showed the sort of sights and creatures you can’t usually see unless you first slug down a pint of Old Overcoat.
Zombies, mutants, pirates, Death himself complete with scythe, wandered under and around the “air-nasium” at the park, rubbing elbows with astronauts, superheroes and lots of little princesses. But the kids were so cute, it was hard to imagine them as scary. Lola Green, age five, had too fetching a smile to make a convincing vampire, and Lauren Johnson’s Cheshire Cat makeup had her grinning no matter what she felt like.
