20th Anniversary Halloween Party

Another successful party. Over 100+ guests in attendance. One of the favorite areas in the garage was the wand crafting station. Josie agreed to pose for me prior to the party.

There was no shortage of food.

The garage was packed most of the evening.

As always, our face painter (and costume designer) did fabulous job.

As promised, I shot a video of the interior and exterior decor.

Have a HAPPY Halloween!
