Munchkin Masquerade in BoulderThe Pearl Street Mall and surrounding streets in Boulder were teaming with families all decked out in their best costumes for the annual Munchkin Masquerade this Halloween.  This event is a ton of fun for families of all ages, but caters especially well to families with small children.  Personally, I liked the fact that this event is held early on in the day, which means the normally packed pedestrian mall was not too crowded with older folks looking for nightlife.  This left plenty of room for the little tikes to run about from store to store collecting their sweet treats…and believe me that’s just what they did!

Check out my short video from this year’s 2012 Munchkin Maquerade in Downtown Boulder!
