The costume parade up and down the six block length of State Street reclaimed the Halloween limelight from the police show of recent years at Freakfest on Saturday night.
As was the case during the Friday night festivities, it was the costumes generated the most interest from revelers. For those investing significant time and energy in both the concept and execution of their outfits, there was a commensurate payoff in terms of attention from the crowd. Multiple observers remarked upon those standing out -- such as a giant praying mantis -- which can be viewed in these photos capturing the crowd at this year's party.
A photo gallery of the costumes found at Freakfest 2007 is available above.
