Jo Mitchelle’s Halloween dress-up town party
October 13, 2021
Jo Mitchelle is petite, an imp or a elf. But she is executing big ideas, conjuring up a 1970s La Conner Halloween by placing corn stalks, pumpkins and gourds at light posts up and down Morris and Streets. Those are minor decorations compared to the “fake people” with which she has populated the downtown: Bob and his dog by the boardwalk at Dirty Biter Park, Suzie on her bench near Step Outside and Lolita the fortune teller by the post office. Get up close and see that they are stuffed with straw and have masks pulled over their pumpkin heads.
It is Halloween, not Christmas, but Mitchel...
