Last night, as a full moon cast an eerie light over the shore, costumed trick-or-treaters ran from home to home – their orange pumpkin pails overflowing with candy. Just two days after the unprecedented Hurricane Sandy hit the Eastern Shore, residents of local communities rushed to make Halloween happen. 

Despite the fact that clean-up efforts were still taking place, children and adults put on their finest Halloween costumes and hit the streets. Many homes, like those along Washington Street in Berlin, MD, were transformed into Halloween masterpieces. 
Check out a few photos below from the night's spooky shenanigans:
