Dressing Up

Another Local Resident, Getting Ready for Halloween Fun

Sierra Madre, like many small towns around here, really enjoys Halloween. It's a fairly massive city-wide event. In the afternoon, there's a window decorating contest downtown, and a parade of the most incredible little ghosts, witches, pumpkins, and princesses you've ever seen, who trick-or-treat at most of the local businesses.  Later, there's fun on Alegria, where the street is closed off for trick-or-treating, and fun for all.  Dressing Up is most definitely the name of the game. 

I've noticed that many kids I know seem to greet the arrival of the Party City flyer, containing this year's costume choices, with the same enthusiasm I had for the Sears Wish Book. Ooooh!!! I want this, and this, and this, and...

So, do you like to dress up for Halloween??  Would you rather just see the kids have fun?  Also, do you know what the Sears Wishbook is, or is that just me?

  1. Sears Wishbook? I didn't know but I do NOW. Brilliant. In my youth I loved dressing up for Halloween and going out where we lived in Pasadena. I will be having fun handing out sweets (no Tootsie Rolls - I am keeping them :)) here in Coventry to all the kiddies who come to our door. (PS. All sorted re the Santa Ana winds being calm for the time being...hooray! Sorry for bringing it up over at Petrea's. The photos she has published in the past of falling branches cause me to worry a little.)

    1. Hi LOL, Dressing up and trick-or-treating like we did back then was fun, wasn't it? Good for you for keeping your tootsie rools!

      No worries about bringing up the wind issue! I should have made an update about the false alarm, so I'm glad you brought it up. We're like one big, happy, ongoing conversation here in BlogVille! :)

  2. Yes, the SM's def get into their Halloween holiday!
    Wishbook sears??
    I care much more about the tradition of Halloween treats rather than dressing up.

    1. Hey Cafe! I would have to agree that the treats are certainly the very most important part of the holiday!

  3. I love that yard and tiled roof. Such a lucky resident witch! And I'm way more into the treats than dressing up as well.

    The Sears Wishbook is new to me. Cool!

    1. Isn't it beautiful? The whole place is amazing (from my vantage point on the street, that is!).

      Oh, the Wishbook... So many happy hours! :)
