Halloween always brings out the spirit in people. Whether you’re a little kid dreaming of all the candy you’re hoping to acquire trick-or-treating or an adult working behind a cash register, getting dressed up and having fun is all part of this annual festival.
Revelstokians are no slouches at this. As you can expect there are parties on all around town tonight and some of the people who will doubtless be going to them got all dressed up for the day. Here are photos from a few of the shops, bars, cafes and other venues around town:
Halloween is an easy celebration to love because it offers everyone — even librarians like Susan Knight (left) and Joan Holzer — a wonderful opportunity to get dressed up. David F.

Krista Cadieux, Mindy Skiner, Patience Gribble and Jennifer Walker served up some frighteningly good lattes at the Modern. David F.

Rooney photo Revelstoke Florists is Costume Central every Halloween and this year its staff, Deanna Ward, Angela Black and Kristin Ward were suitably dressed for the occasion. David F.

Rooney photo That naughty nurse, Carol Perkins, again, with Cindy Simpson, AKA Victoria's Secret's Heidi Klum, made an eye-popping pair at Cooper's. David F. Rooney photo Cooper's Manager Joe Mele is always a straight shooter, even when he's dressed to kill as Al Capone. David F.

David F. Rooney photo The staff at the Regent Pub are always game for Halloween as the witchy Tracy Kessler joined Cat Girl Julie Hancock and that not-so-innocent nun Kirby Edwards. David F. Rooney photo And finally, Last Drop Manager John Price looks a little the worse for wear. Fortunately, umpire Anna Hicks looks positively perky. David F. Rooney photo
