Editor’s note: Since 2008, Myra Klarman, a professional photographer based in Ann Arbor, has been sharing with Chronicle readers her images from the annual Main Street Halloween Treat Parade. [Take a look at her photos from 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2008 as well.] This year was a bit damp, but trick-or-treaters – and Myra – were undaunted. We hope you enjoy the festivities – Happy Halloween!
“These muscles are all natural – no scare-oid use was involved.”
Hap- Hap- Happy Halloween, let’s go trick-or-treating,
And when we get back home, ya’ll can start with the candy-eating,
But you know me, I ain’t nothin but an old-fashioned country bumpkin,
Gonna go out in the patch tonight,
And gonna harvest me a little fat orange pumpkin.
(Dangit. But “yellow chicken” don’t rhyme.)
Trick-or-Tweet! … Wait a minute, where is Tweety Bird?? She was just here!
Bous Chef in Boots.
My airplane wings are now a little droopy, but I was flying high and made a loop-da-loopy!
A good witch and a bad witch? Hard to say, but the one in blue is not going to let the cat out of the bag.
Roll Call: Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy … and Soggy.
And in this corner …
… pound-for-pound the hardest snacking trick-or-treater Main Street has seen for many years.
“For the record, I know the difference between a pacifier and Halloween candy, but I’m happy anyway, cuz that’s how jack-o-lanterns roll.”
