While adult revelers filled the Castro and Dolores Park’s Halloween Hill Bomb saw a stabbing and a scuffle, Bernal Heights was alive with the undead on Monday night—along with lots of happy-go-lucky kids.

The family-heavy area around Treat Avenue—with one intersection listing a seasonally appropriate cross street as “Trick”—filled up with inflatable dinosaur costumes, skeletons in light-up masks, kindergarten princesses and more. In spite of the occasional terror, like windows bedecked with blood-spattered “Help! Do Not Enter” decorations, the mood was buoyant and the Baby Ruths were plentiful. It’s been a pretty good year for costumes overall.

Good thing this morning’s occasionally heavy rain didn’t arrive a day early! Check out The Standard’s Halloween gallery for the full rundown on some truly adorable costumes, plus the odd horror house mummified in yellow crime-scene tape.
