Market Vendors Compete in Halloween Costume Contest

At the final market of the 2015 outdoor season, vendors dressed for Halloween! Shoppers voted for their favorite of the seven participating vendors. The winner will be announced at the first Indoor Winter Market on November 7, and will receive a free vendor membership for 2016, courtesy of market manager, Tracy Simmons.

Harold and Naomi Brenzikofer, The Country Flower Shed, came dressed as a gentleman farmer and his lady. It's true, Harold is always a gentleman, but he did dress extra spiffy for the occasion.

Maria Hernandez came as a cat!

Delmer Hinrichs had some Frankenstein sized stitches!

Who was this ghoul? Why, it's Jeanette Hurshman!

The legendary Bob Karr at the bat.

Wanda Myers, just looking for a brain.

And Van Gogh brought his Starry Night masterpiece (aka Ben & Jessie Stallings).
