Waterbury, CT

The Waterbury Halloween celebration included a very small parade. Compared to the Memorial Day, you could almost miss it by blinking, but there were a fife and drum corps, small band contingents, and a couple of the same exotic high school girls' drill teams that appeared here back in this post, but this time they performed as zombies...

Waterbury, CT

The classic cars at the Halloween party on the Waterbury green got a lot of attention, but the number one attention-getter was a 1993 Lamborghini Diablo. There were much older cars and pickups, the Chevy BelAire that starred in the latest Indiana Jones movie, everything from an early Mustang to a Hudson Hornet to several lovingly kept or restored cars, like a Chevy II, that hadn't been much to start with. A Ferrari sat next to an exotic Ford GT supercar, but the crowd was always thickest around the Lamborghini. From the jackknife door to the multi-louvered engine cover and the 12 cylinder power plant beneath it when the lid was up, everything came in for close inspection.

People constantly posed for pictures with the Diablo. The most common exclamation made on encountering it was, against all evidence of reality, "That's my car!"

Waterbury, CT

The classic cars were the most dramatic part of the low-key city party.

Not easy to look spooky with just a dress and a little makeup in broad daylight, but she did OK.

Halloween Party

Waterbury, CT

The city of Waterbury throws a big Halloween parade and block party on the town green, but the Saturday blast was called off because of day-long pouring rain. Sunday it was still chilly, but bright and sunny so the crowds were out in force.

Unlikely Accusation

Waterbury, CT

What struck me on finding this is that in fact I've seen hardly any defacement of the many political posters to be found everywhere.

Another Household

Litchfield, Connecticut

I've been seeing these signs at pro-health care reform rallies and demonstrations, but was surprised to see one set up as a lawn sign. Thinking about it, I don't recall seeing lawn signs used to express a public opinion on a general issue. Mostly lawn signs support a specific political candidate or slate of candidates. Sometimes they'll support a specific election issue, like "vote YES on the school budget." Maybe a new trend.
