Costume contests, live music, burlesque and more meant costume-clad celebration Saturday night in downtown Juneau.

The night featured inflatible, fighting dinosaurs, unicorns, videogame characters and more.

One costume even integrated a tricycle that was wheeled into and parked inside multiple bars. Thomas McKenzie and Ana Enge dressed as Harry and Lloyd from “Dumb and Dumber,” but didn’t opt for the oft-done orange and blue tuxedo look. Instead, McKenzie wore a Mutt Cuts-inspired dog suit and Enge rolled in a pair of pilot’s goggles. They said the trike was purchased especially for Halloween.

“We bought it for tonight,” McKenzie said. “We’ve been talking about this for years.”
