DJ Jimmy served up some classics: a few singles from Thriller, Warren Zevon’s Werewolves of London, and of course, everyone’s favorite, The Monster Mash… “it was a graveyard smash…”.
While the brave danced, the shy munched pizza, or caught scenes from Beetlejuice, the old comedy-horror movie, cast on an 8-foot screen. Still others, brave and braver, young and old, visited the featured special effects make-up artists set-up at tables around The Woodland. Dena Zombie was particularly busy giving people hideous scars. (Yick!) Gentler artists also applied rainbows and sparkles.
The high school band, Parker Street closed the festivities with covers of
”Smells Like Teen Spirit” and ”Stacey’s Mom” and a punk-inspired original song. Whole Foods from Millburn Avenue donated snacks and coupons; Eddie’s Amusements provided hot dogs, funnel cakes, and yes – fried twinkies!
Games included: a version of Fear Factor, the freeze dance, musical chairs, and the Mummy wrap – won – we believe – by Vanessa Pollock and her championship, tp twirling family.
Enjoy the photos – if you dare.
