It's official. Halloween season is now in full swing.
More than 200 people dressed in all manner of clever costumes packed into Port City Music Hall in Portland tonight for this year's Ghoulwill Ball. For the second year in a row, Goodwill Industries of Northern New England has hosted this party as a way to raise funds for its programs and as a vehicle to draw attention to the popularity of Goodwill stores with Halloween costume hunters. Halloween is the busiest time of year at the stores. To give you a sense of how creative tonight's costumes were, check out the photo above which features a number of Goodwill staffers and their terrific ensembles.
Here's a shot of more of tonight's fun looks, as captured on the dance floor. The Waiters kept the crowd boogieing all night.
In addition to my usual photo snapping duties, I had the honor of being one of the judges for tonight's costume contest along with State Senator Justin Alfond and Erin Elizabeth of the Portland Phoenix.
I'll have all the details about the winners plus more photos in the Oct. 30 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram.
Until then, I hope to see you out and about.Tweet
