It was one of those nights when Lani and I decided not to stay at home but to go dancing instead. No the "Treat or Tricks" little monsters didn't scare us. We had stocked up with treats for the once a year spook night. Now we gotta burn off the calories after digging into the treats for the next couple of weeks. Anyway, Lani and I got to the Palladium a wee bit early but it gave us the chance to assist John, Tom, and Bunnie setting up the chairs.

The following photo snips are of some of those that came in costumes but not necessarily entered in the contest.
As Lynn wrote: "Everyone had great costumes that the judges had to carefully look over everyone in costume to pick out just the right ones." And the Winners are:
The Funniest Costumes went to Earl Yonehara (Ebi Sushi) and Gayle Handa (Spam Musubi). Ebi is shrimp in Japanese and the shrimp was mighty big.
The Most Original Costumes went to the Prison Guards and Prisoners that was created by Rikki Mitsunaga. The Prison Guards were Charlotte Bugarin and Rikki Mitsunaga, and the Prisoners were Edwin Bugarin and Warren Mitsunaga.
The Scariest Costumes went to Robert and Vanelle Hirayasu. Zombies and Ghouls..boy they can really scare the day lights off anyone.
The Most Outstanding Costume winner was Margaret Tomibe who came as Cleopatra.
Congratulations to all the winners and to all those that made this Halloween Dance an entertaining and successful one.
The finale was a line dance to the tune of Thriller. Dance Magic 808 Line Dance Insructor Roxanne "Roxie" Kaino choreographed a wonderful replica of the Michael Jackson Zombie Dance. It was fun and entertaining to watch. Performing in the dance were the Dead Ladies from Dance Magic 808: Roxie Kaino, Eileen Nakano, Renee Reed, Doreen Morimoto, Tandy Alconcel, Millie Chun, and Ann Manuel.

Well, Lani and I had gone full circle and we're back where we started when we first entered the ballroom earlier and met our friends Tom and Bunnie. But now it was time to call it a night.
