THE VIEW FROM OAK PARK

The Official Krisztina Blogsite
Halloween yard

Rats and spiders and ghosts, Oh My!! Rats and spiders and ghosts, Oh My!! What a Hallowe’en it was in Oak Park this year! Thanks to all the witches, vampires and goblins (and their parents) who wandered our ‘hood on the big night. Your sheer numbers made our street festivities the best yet! We attracted a lot of attention on Roxton with crowds, and even drive-bys. Our own Crime Scene set-up brought in dozens (although the police lights going all night may have scared away a few of you!) According to my husband, CSI Pazz, he thinks a vampire was chained to a tree the night before and got burnt by the sun when daylight came. Yuck! (Oakville’s Councillor Knoll even sent out a Tweet with video proclaiming this the best Hallowe’en set-up – check it out. I’ve also linked my YouTube video of the Crime Scene!) As I mentioned I always over-buy in the candy department – but this year it was a good thing as I helped out some of my neighbours. (In truth, I am probably in part responsible for the excessive rush, but oh well!!) So here it is by the numbers…

Number of Trick-or-Treaters – 228

Number of Hot Apple Cider and Gluvine cups handed out – 175

The Perfect Pumpkin Destination – The Apple Factory

$ Spent – Top Secret

Hallowe’en Celebrations in Oak Park – Priceless!!
