Oh Halloween in Madison, what a fun and crazy time of the year. To celebrate here in the office we started looking through our collection of past badger yearbooks to see how UW Madison students used to celebrate.

I found this article from 1977 about the state street chaos that still lives on today! Check out those great costumes! I love the ghosts with a small hole for the mouth, just big enough for a straw to fit in! Click on the image for a closer look at these hilarious pictures or to read the article. Maybe it will help you come up with a costume idea for this weekend!
