Where are all the pictures of the KIDS?

Amen to that! Of the 15 featured people, only 4 of them were kids.

Are these all of the pictures that were taken? There were so many creative costumes--someone was dressed as a Christmas tree with lights and the legs and feet were Christmas packages; a little one was in a bubble bath made of white balloons; another little one was dressed as a lobster and in a pot; and two brothers were the cutest robots! It was a beautiful night and everyone was having a great time! I love to see that kind of news!

Pretty crappy gallery! There were thousands of people downtown and you only took 8 pictures?

maybe while everyone was worried about running out of candy, they ran out of film for the camera

I don't know if these are pictures ljw took or what others submitted but there should be more photos with kids. The down town trick or treating is for them. I don't have a problem with parents dressing up. I think that's just another fun family activity and it can be good for the kids to have their parents get into the spirit of things. I don't think adults should have been trying to score candy.
I would hope there are more pictures of kids showing up soon.

Maybe taking random pics of little kids and posting them on the LJW website is a little creepy so they stuck with the adults.
