Despite cooler temperatures and drizzling rain, thousands of costumed revelers poured into town and onto Court Street for Athens' annual Halloween Block Party.
In addition to being entertained by a dozen bands, attendees were able to follow activities and updates on Twitter, Facebook and a blog, a first for the city.
