|Argon||Halloween in the Pumpkin Patch|
Although I missed the party Patch O'Black, local Jellicle cat threw in his Midnight Meadows, I can report on what happened in the Rose Garden. But for the night of October 31st, it had been made to look like the pumpkin patch in the cartoon, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The sky had that watercolor purple and black wash look to it, and there were pumpkins and their vines everywhere! It was quite well done.
Many SpinDizzy residents were in costume. Furpents became catapillars, civets were armored, centaurs were, well different centaurs, even the ballon folk got in the act by wearing one another. That was a sight to see! Some of the kits came dressed up and a few grown-up folk came as kits. They went around "trick or treating" the crowd who happily provided treats rather than get tricked.
Because of other engagements, I missed the big bash at Patch's place, but if the fun had in the Rose Garden was transfered over there, it must have been a fun party. Hopefully there is a report on it elsewhere in this issue of @Action News!
