Halloween night on M Street was almost like Times Square on New Year’s Eve — except for the cars. From 9 p.m. until midnight, the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare was gridlocked with pedestrians dressed as (and cars full of) pirates, ghosts, witches and zombies. Individuals of all ages, shapes and sizes wore headdresses, wigs of every imaginable color and the familiar uniforms of Batman, Wonder Woman and various videogame warriors. There was an occasional princess. But the adults who strolled the street and sidewalks — expanded courtesy of the Georgetown Business Improvement District — chose not to dress up in the scariest images of the day: politicians and the president. After all, the night was supposed to be fun. It was.
Georgetown homes were also decorated for the holiday — and many showed some ingenuity and creativity.
