The Halloween Parade last night in Geneva was great! All the costumes were awesome, and there are many creative minds out there!
But....when did an activity that is geared towards the children of the community become so political? The Democratic committee had people handing out literature on their candidates. They even used a dog to have signs on and taped the signs to the poor dog. (I bet that hurt when his owner took the signs off!) The Republican committee was set up outside the Red Brick handing out cloth bags in support of re-electing a Senator and there were cider and donuts there provided by another candidate.
Mind you, none of the people that were out there doing the campaigning were yelling or being loud about who they support, but was a parade for the community children the place to be handing out literature? Or "treat" bags as they were calling them? I mean they were trying to stay out of the focus, but really.....

I missed the parade, did anyone dress up as the 305 gas station?

This close to an election, where there are more than 5 people gathered, there'll probably be a campaigner!

LOL!

I think I saw someone dressed like that but they kept falling down and no one could decide what to do with it.
