Halloween on Lincoln Road: Ghoulish Scenes From a Restaurant
All photos by Laine Doss
Thousands of superheros, vampires, zombies, and sexy pirates walked Lincoln Road last night for Miami's biggest Halloween celebration. Restaurants were decked out in black streamers and spider webs, with some putting skeletons in charge of the hostess stands. Not an empty table could be found, as devils, wenches, and SWAT team members hunkered down for the night at their prized restaurant spots to watch the parade.
