Halloween Party Recap

Wow. Wow! WOW!

The Library's Halloween Party was a resounding success. Over eighty kids entered our costume contest, so if you do the math...that's a lot of people.

The Beggars outdid themselves. A few of their songs were rewritten to be holiday and audience appropriate. There was "Stop, Drop, Tootsie Roll" and "Snickers, Skittles and Twix". They were in costume and threw treats to the audience. It was a brilliant show, and proved that you don't need booze to enjoy a good rock show.

Carjack not only put on an awesome show, but he really made the night by bringing along some fantastic lighting. The place looked more like a venue than a library meeting room. Carjack donned a wolfman mask and put on his trademark energetic show. The crowd even demanded an encore!

The best part about this for me is that it happened in a library full of people of all ages. The event brought together a ton of people, with one purpose: having fun. And it looks like it was successful. Thanks to everyone who helped out with this: candy donors, the bands, volunteers, staff members, and attendees!
