Pink Good Witch Glinda

If you read my post yesterday for Halloween, you will see I wrote about the annual "Haunted Halloween Walk" that was held last week in a local park near where I live in Brooklyn, New York.
At the very end of the walk appeared the good witch Glinda from the Wizard of OZ!

She was sprinkling all the children who were brave enough to have finished the haunted walk with magic fairy dust and told them they could now go home again.

She was the perfect end to a fun afternoon Halloween celebration!
I hope you all had a HAPPY HALLOWEEN too!

To see more pink posts visit our wonderful host, Beverly, at How Sweet The Sound for the list of all the blogs that are participating today in Pink Saturday!

Just the thought of Glinda makes me grin. Every time I think of a fifty-something year old lovely works for me.

She was always my favorite on the Wizard of Oz, she would sooth your nerves after being scared to death!

Good witches are awesome, and Glinda is definitely my favorite of all good witches.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Pat. Not much longer for that sweet baby to arrive. ;-)

I loved the haunted tour pics...it looks like a lot of fun (and...like a LOT of work goes in to it! I'm very impressed by it all.). Wasn't the weather here amazing for Halloween?! It was our first year not going to the parade in NYC (it's just gotten soooo crowded)...so we made our own fun in Asbury Park. We had great fun!

What a great way to end the haunted walk, sending the kiddies home with images of Glinda instead of the really scary parts.

Wow what a talented woman to be able to walk in such high stilts!

Lovely idea for the children so they can finish the day on such a sweet note. I loved her dress in the film- perfect for a good witch.
