Halloween in Riverie 2017

Here we are again another Halloween in Riverie. I think this is our 4th Halloween participation. It's actually quite amazing as it is very popular in this village. I did around 60 "goodie bags" and by the end of the night we only had seven. This year we had the haunted house but no Halloween party at the castle. In fact this is the second year where there was no party. Kind of a bummer really as the kids love it.

Note: Halloween is just recently getting popular in France. It's not a celebration that is typically French. One thing is cool though, you have two days (November 1st and 2nd) off from school and work. These days are celebrated and are referred to as "All Saint's Day" and "All Souls Day."
We are ready Freddy!
 We even put Jack-O-Lanterns on our window sills.

 We had lots of trick or treaters from around 6pm to 8pm.
 Hehehe.... that's Norbert's face in the circle. He wore a different mask this year.
The costume on the right was a bit creepy!
 I bought these a few years ago at a swap meet.

 I didn't take a whole lot of photos, but believe me the couple in charge of this put in a lot of hard work. Kudos to them for making Halloween in Riverie fun.
