From a friend out on a ride I heard a tale of an individual dressed in full grim reaper garb, including sickle, and mounted on a black steed, stationed at one end of the bridge over the river from William Pond to Goethe Park . Just from one report I am willing to dub this individual the wearer of the greatest costume ever seen in Sacramento. Did anyone else see this?
(By the way, is there a name for that bridge? RonTopofIt and I are stumped on that.)
UPDATE: RonTopOfIt came through. That bridge is called the Harold Richey Memorial Bicycle Bridge.
I visited the Party City store yesterday on Arden Way and couldn’t help but notice the costumes designed for our little ones. Seriously, what’s worse? Dressing your “boy” up as a Convict Clown (“This scary clown should be locked up”) or Rapsta (“F’Shizzle, this costizzle is the dizzle!”)?
Scary thing is, I am sure many kids will be one of these without ever visiting the costume store. You can guess which one, yo.

We enjoyed some high-returns trick-or-treating last night in Tahoe Park (specifically the region between 11th and Raymond Aves and 58th-60th streets. It was positively hoppin, a great vibe.) Witches seemed to be very popular. As usual, the most popular costume had to be “punky high schooler walking around with a pillowcase full of candy” (and I know that’s not limited to TP…)
When we got home and reviewed the photos we realized that I wore the same outfit as last year, which is funny considering it’s a night specifically about dressing up, even though as I previously stated I do not participate. Read on for the photo comparison…
