This iReport is part of an assignment:
Shutdown over: What next?
HALLOWEEN CANCELLED: DUE TO GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
There are pumpkins, orange lights and many life-sized characters, politicians and celebrities. They include President Barack Obama, Senator Ted Cruz, House Speaker John Boehner, Russian President Vladamir Putin, Willie from Duck Dynasty, Walter White from Breaking Bad, Robin Thicke from MTV and a moving or should we say "twerking" Miley Cyrus complete with a foam finger. Since the block is "G" rated there is no Anthony Weiner or anybody else in a hot dog costume.
Good news, a deal is close to ending the shutdown and funding has already been obtained for candy on Halloween night.
This exhibit is free and can be seen on Lawndale Street in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb just north of Chicago.
Trick or Treat for all, shutdown or not.
