Halloween in Elizabeth City was so fun and we found that the American’s are much more into it than we are back home.
The cruising families, wanting to keep life as “normal” as possible, got into it pretty good as well. In the afternoon, all the kids carved their pumpkins on the dock and proudly displayed them in front of their boats and of course they all dressed up for trick or treating……even some of the adults joined in.
A very cool neighbourhood in town with very stately homes was blocked off specifically for the event. The city must sponsor the residents as the homes were all done up to look very spooky and the little ghosties and goblins showed up by the thousands. (Of course, we had to check it out too.) It was very well done. Too bad I forgot my camera.
