Halloween fell on a Friday this year, which meant double the fun for anyone with a good costume and a desire to party. And dancing trick-or-treaters pulled out all the stops at a couple of events around town. Westword photographer Brandon Marshall captured the action at City Hall, where Riff Raff and a host of costumed revelers gathered for Coloween, while fellow photographer Ken Hamblin got into the groove at Beauty Bar, where Cold Cave and Lipgloss were holding court. Take a look at the photos on the next page and then click on the clicks to our full slide shows from both events.
