Yesterday work was a circus. Halloween is a big deal at the Statesman. All the departments compete to have the best Halloween theme. Employees bring their kids though to trick or treat. Last year Advertising won as Harry Potter.
This year the Newsroom won with the theme political circus in honor of the upcoming election. The theme beat out Advertising's "Chronicles of Narnia," Circulation's "It's a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" and even IT's technology graveyard.
We had politically charged carnival games, a cotton candy machine, multiple bearded ladies and our newsroom manager wore her snake like a scarf most the day.
Here's a few pictures to document the tradition.
