Kids of all ages dressed in their costumes for Madison's Red, White & Boo Halloween party at the Brown Gym on Thursday.

With trick-or-treating postponed until tonight because of the rain, party attendance was heavy. When the party began, the line to enter the Brown Gym stretched north past Second Street.

Top, Kory Land, 7, stands with his sword drawn in a ninja costume while waiting in line in the rain. Bottom, with her hair and wings dampened by the rain, Kylie Lindsey, 1, dries out in her ferry costume and looks around at all the other children at the party.
