World-Famous Krupicka Family Halloween Party, 2013 Edition

October 29th, 2013 (12:50 am)

As usual, the World-Famous Krupicka Family Halloween Party was Del Ray's best party of the year. Skeletons were especially popular this time, particularly those with a Day of the Dead vibe. Speaking of skeletons, Rob and Lisa really outdid themselves with the food, decorations, and other preparations this year. And that's saying a lot.

It wasn't all skeletons. Other colorful, scary, or imaginative costumes abounded. I never made the time to have my fortune told. I guess I was too busy eating baked potatoes and drinking sangria. The kids had a blast bouncing in the moon bounce and toasting the world's biggest marshmallows for s'mores. Even the weather was perfect -- a relief, after last year's hurricane.

Here is a selection of photos with some highlights.

Putting on such a great party takes a lot of preparation. Poor Lisa worked herself to the bone.
