Pumpkins and Zombies

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I had a very exciting night. Mom and Dad decided at the last minute to go downtown and see a bunch of carved pumpkins like ours and watch a parade.

Mom and Dad went to a college called "Transylvania." Since it was founded, the name has also become famous because it's where Dracula lives. So Transy loves Halloween. The latest festivity added is called "Pumpkin Mania." 250 students, faculty, and friends carved pumpkins and they put them on the steps of the administration building. It's also the building that has a real life tomb.

My dad, me, and Mom

After we looked at all the pumpkins (and I sniffed a few other doggies there), we went further downtown to the Thriller parade. This isn't any old parade. The people are all dressed as zombies (whatever those are) and they dance to Michael Jackson's (whoever he is) song "Thriller." Only one isn't a zombie and he's dressed like Michael.

That's Michael

And these are zombies.

I got a little nervous because there was a big crowd for the parade. But Mom and Dad bent down and gave me lots of pets and everyone else standing with us gave me a little room to wander. I also sniffed a dog dressed as a skeleton a lot! It made me excited to put on my costume tonight!


  1. That looks like some wicked fun you had there, did you all join in with the Thriller dance? I know I wouldn't have been able to stop myself!!
